We propose biological real-time pattern extraction. In order to extract objects from a frame image taken by a camera, many virtual flies (VFs) scattered on the CRT display are utilized. An individual VF composed of 3×3 pixels can freely fly in the display. Fundamental object extraction is to detect objects just like flies sensing food and swarming around. Methodology realized by soft-computing technology and experimental results are described in detail.
