The objective of this paper is to design a model which can integrate a range sensor with real time image processing. An FPGA provides physical solutions for most image processing problems and offers a new hardware acceleration opportunity. In this paper we implemented image normalization along with edge detection on real time images and then integrated the range sensor. The model is validated using Spartan-3 FPGA.
