This paper introduces a generalization of cellular automata in which each celi is a tape-bounded Turing machine rather than a finite-state machine. Fast algorithms are given for performing various basic image processing tasks by such automata. It is suggested that this model of parallel computation is a very suitable one for studying the advantages of parallelism in this domain.
