Multiprocessors can be used to speed up the process of object recognition. Building a parallel vision system is a two step process: (a) design and implement parallel algorithms for individual operations, and (b) integrate them into a coherent system. So far the emphasis has been on the first step. The second step has not received enough attention. A framework for building a parallel vision system is presented here. The necessary and desirable features of such a system have been identified. An initial design which incorporates these features is also given.
