Computer vision is an important research area where computationally-intensive and time critical problems need to be solved routinely. This paper described some parallel algorithms for image processing and computational geometry applicable to the field of 'robot vision' which was developed using PACE parallel computer, a closely coupled message passing MIMD machine, designed and developed at the Advanced Numerical Reserach & Analysis Group, Hyderabad.
