The ACIDE system is designed to automatically gather and process images that can be automatically downloaded from the sensor to the database through an electronic link. ACIDE is conceived to be programmable in such a way that it will have a certain capability to react to events. It will be able to recognize the context of image acquisition (or other image attributes), to dispatch an image to the appropriate processing algorithm, to save the results of the analysis and, finally, to warn the operator if something of interest has been found. This report contains a description of the concepts behind the system as well as its purpose and goals. It describes each one of its components, i.e. the program ACIDE_IO that automatically inserts images into the database, the image database catalogue and storage array and the image processing module. It also indicates what kind of information can be stored in the database, how extended can be the queries for information about images and what are the possibilities of image retrieval by specifying their attributes.
