1. Objective & Requirement

The object of this course is the graduate students of computer science and technology. This course aims at theory and technology which will thoroughly introduce typical applications of computer vision principle, technology, frontier research content and the computer vision in the military field. This course will teach students in computer machine vision processing theory and technology and related application research.

This course includes computer vision summary, computer vision applications in the military field, traditional algorithms of computer vision, frontier technology, etc. In the learning process the students will get study notes that cover the main contents of this course. The students will practice a small projects combined his research direction and computer vision applications, in order to complete the task of learning this course. The first course of the curriculum is advanced mathematics, linear algebra, basic probability theory, matrix, linear space, computer advanced programming language, and object-oriented programming technology.

2. Topics to be covered

We will cover the following core topics plus a set of selected topics:

(i) The basic theory of computer vision (basic visual principles, projection model, basic methods and practical algorithm, including the human vision, feeling field, visual information of multi-level parallel processing, visual information integration and feedback, image analysis).

(ii) 2D vision (2D motion analysis, Hough transform, Fourier descriptor, image segmentation, texture analysis of statistical methods, from the texture restoration shape, light and shade analysis, photometric stereo, color perception and color visual processing, color constancy).

(iii) 3D vision (depth image and stereo vision, camera calibration, vision system calibration, object representation, 3D motion analysis and object recognition).
