In the paper a new architecture for image analysis: HERMIA (Heterogeneous and Reconfigurable Machine for Image Analysis) is presented. It has bt:en developed at the University of Palermo, inside the Progetto Finalizzato of the ltalian Council of Researches (CNR): Sistemi informatici eCalcolo Parallelo. The architecture of the HERMIA-machine is reconfigurable, moreover the integration of heterogeneous module, oriented to the solution of specific problems, allows to salve complex problems by search of optimal strategies. Signa! processing units allows the user to handle and integrate multi-sensors signals (from video, scanner, music recorder). Here the generaiarchitecture, the hardware implementation, and the iconic environment, of the HERMIA-machine are described. The preliminary system evaluation and foreseen applications are discussed.
