A New Simulation of Spiral Architecture

Introduction Hexagonal structure is different from the traditional square structure for image representation. The geometrical arrangement of pixels on hexagonal structure can be described in terms of a hexagonal grid. Hexagonal structure provides an easy way for image translation and rotation information. Spiral Architecture is a relatively new and powerful approach to machine vision system.
