This patent is considered the first patent of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

This is a real-time processing system for color recognition which has been implemented on the basis of a compatible personal computer with color video camera, a commercial frame grabber, and a reconfigurable hardware coprocessor. This system executes mainly two processes: (i) a learning stage where colors of an image are characterized by software; and (ii) a real-time recognition stage, where chromatic objects are identified anywhere. The parallel and fully pipelined reconfigurable coprocessor is able to execute a recognition algorithm on 25 Hz sequences of 512 x 512 pixel images.
