The paper presents some practical solutions for diminishing the
size of cellular automata hardware dedicated to image processing tasks
to be used in a traffic control system. The specificity of visual
processing tasks, especially the real-time processing and parallel
processing of high dimension and low resolution images lend a big size
circuit that can be hardly implemented even with VLSI technologies.
Therefore, we present some simple techniques that operate on the
size-time product and offer adequate solutions for real systems. These
are mainly the common use of the local memories that allow the local
functions performing and the function composition that lends to a new
structuring of the rule space
