For:   MT  


Prel. scheduled hours: 38
Rec. self-study hours: 122

  Area of Education: Technology

Subject area: Media Engineering

  Advancement level (G1, G2, A): A

The aim of the course is to give the students a theoretical and practical basis for computerized processing and analysis of digital images. After the course the student shall be able to:
  • describe the structure of the human eye
  • construct and use simple linear and non-linear filters in the spatial domain
  • understand the connection between the spatial domain and the frequency domain
  • describe the principles of image filtering in the frequency domain
  • describe and implement simple methods for image segmentation
  • understand and use morphological operations on binary images
  • describe different methods for representation of objects in images
  • describe the principles of pattern recognition based on decision functions

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Linear algebra, Calculus in several variables, Signals and systems

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Supplementary courses:
Advanced Image Processing, Procedural Methods for Images

The course is given in the form of lectures and laboratory work.

Course contents:
The human vision system. Digital images: resolution, tone transformations. Filtering in the spatial domain. The Fourier transform, filtering in the frequency domain. Image restoration. Morphological operations. Segmentation. Representation of objects in images. Pattern recognition.
