EN2400 Image Processing 6.0 credits
This course has been discontinued.
Last planned examination: Spring 2000
Decision to discontinue this course:No information inserted
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.
Content and learning outcomes
Fundamentals of image processing: vision, physics of light, image acquisition by sensors, image sampling and quantization. Spatial image based enhancement. Frequency-domain based image enhancement. Image restoration: degradation models and noise models, spatial filtering methods, model estimation. Color image processing: color models, color transformations, color enhancement, color segmentation. Image compression fundamentals: lossy and lossless compression, image coding standards.
Intended learning outcomes
To provide an understanding of image processing technology.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- ANN1 - Home Work, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 4.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Other requirements for final grade
Written examination (75%), home assignments (25%).
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
