MCE552 Computer Vision and Image Processing
[3–0, 3 cr.]
This course introduces fundamental concepts and techniques for image processing and computer vision. We will address 1) how to efficiently represent and process image/video signals, and 2) how to deliver image/video signals over networks. Topics to be covered include: image acquisition and display using digital devices, properties of human visual perception, sampling and quantization, image enhancement, image restoration, two-dimensional Fourier transforms, linear and nonlinear filtering, morphological operations, noise removal, image deblurring, edge detection, image registration and geometric transformation, image/video compression, video communication standards, video transport over the Internet and wireless networks, object recognition and image understanding.
Pre-requisites: Fifth-year standing and the consent of the instructor.
