''Adaptive Image Filtering using Run-Time Reconfiguration''

Proc. 2003 Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop
In adaptive image filtering, the coefficients of the filtering
window can change in response to local conditions as the window
moves from pixel to pixel over an image.
This appears to preclude a solution approach involving
run-time reconfiguration (RTR), as efficient use of RTR depends
on a sufficient stretch of computing time between reconfiguring
This paper applies RTR to solve the adaptive image filtering
problem by capitalizing on the regular appearance of each pixel
in multiple filtering windows.
We describe our approach and present simulation results
demonstrating its merit.
