Abstract: A data flow functional model for the multiprocessor HERMES vision machine (an autonomous image processing system) is described. The structural model of HERMES is represented as a large scale Petri Net, composed out of previously proposed decision-making primitives. The primitives table has been expanded in this project in order to make it fit the particular properties of HERMES. The modeling methodology provides a tool to analyze large-scale image processing systems by simulation on a variety of computing systems without the need of any hardware construction.
