  abstract =     "This paper presents a new methodology for the design
                 of image processing algorithms. The presented approach
                 is based on the conception and design of {"}image
                 exploring agents{"}. Image exploring agents iteratively
                 run a sense-compute-act loop. While all loop processing
                 is performed within the image on a local base, the
                 trace of the agent, which results from the repetition
                 of this loop, is a global image property. Hence, a
                 given global recognition task is represented by a
                 corresponding task of finding a suitable, local-based
                 computation. The exploitation of genetic programming
                 for finding suitable computational parts of the agent
                 is considered. A case study is included, in which a
                 crack detector is designed and improved by means of an
                 image exploring agent. The functionality of this agent
                 is studied, and it is used for designing an image
                 processing algorithm for crack detection. Also, further
                 improvements of the presented agent concept are given
                 in this paper. c 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights
