EN2400 Image Processing 6.0 credits

Bildbehandling

The course is an introduction to modern image processing technology. It provides both the underlying principles of image processing and hands-on experience with commonly used methods. It begins with the principles of vision and the fundamentals of the physics of light. It discusses basic image processing techniques such as spatial and transform domain filtering, multi-resolution analysis, lossless coding and quantization. These techniques are applied to practical image processing applications including restoration, enhancement, segmentation, and coding.
