CEN 480: Computer Vision

Offered Under: B.Sc. in Computer Engineering (CEN)
Description

This course aims to introduce the subject of computer vision and its areas of application. It will be shown how challenges related to the understanding of the human visual system and the natural visual system can be implemented into computers. The main topics of discussion are: Stereo or 3D counterpart creation from 2D images, motion detection in 2D image or video sequences, video processing for action annotation. After successful completion of the course, the students will know how low-level vision techniques learned in image processing can be combined or applied to acquire higher level-visual perception.


Prerequisites:
  • None
