Issue No.10 - October (1975 vol.24)
A fast low-cost programmable optical-digital scanner-processor designed mainly for the purposes of edge and curve detection and on-line processing is presented. The main components of this system are a minicomputer, a linear photodiode array with driver and conversion interface, and a digital flatbed plotter.
