The LIP-Canny algorithm outperforms traditional Canny edge detection in terms of edge detection under varying illumination. This method is based on a robust mathematical model (LIP paradigm), which is closer to the human vision system. However, this model requires more computations and more complex operations than the traditional paradigm. Non-parallel implementations of LIP-Canny do not fit Real-Time requirements because of the large amount of operations required. NVIDIA CUDA is a platform which enables the parallelization of this algorithm, obtaining very high performance. In this work, a comparison results between the non-parallel implementation (written in C/C++) and the NVIDIA CUDA one.
