A Practical Introduction to Computer Vision with OpenCV by Kenneth Dawson-Howe

By Kenneth Dawson-Howe

Explains the speculation at the back of uncomplicated laptop imaginative and prescient and gives a bridge from the speculation to functional implementation utilizing the typical OpenCV libraries

Computer imaginative and prescient is a swiftly increasing quarter and it really is turning into gradually more uncomplicated for builders to use this box as a result prepared availability of top quality libraries (such as OpenCV 2).  this article is meant to facilitate the sensible use of computing device imaginative and prescient with the target being to bridge the space among the idea and the sensible implementation of machine imaginative and prescient. The e-book will clarify how one can use the proper OpenCV library exercises and may be observed through an entire operating software together with the code snippets from the textual content. This textbook is a seriously illustrated, useful advent to a thrilling box, the purposes of that are changing into virtually ubiquitous.  we're now surrounded via cameras, for instance cameras on pcs & capsules/  cameras outfitted into our cellphones/  cameras in video games consoles; cameras imaging tricky modalities (such as ultrasound, X-ray, MRI) in hospitals, and surveillance cameras. This publication is anxious with aiding the following iteration of laptop builders to use some of these photos with the intention to boost platforms that are extra intuitive and have interaction with us in additional clever ways. 

  • Explains the idea in the back of easy computing device imaginative and prescient and offers a bridge from the idea to functional implementation utilizing the typical OpenCV libraries
  • Offers an advent to laptop imaginative and prescient, with adequate conception to clarify how some of the algorithms paintings yet with an emphasis on sensible programming issues
  • Provides adequate fabric for a one semester path in laptop imaginative and prescient at senior undergraduate and Masters levels 
  • Includes the fundamentals of cameras and pictures and photograph processing to take away noise, prior to relocating directly to themes reminiscent of photo histogramming; binary imaging; video processing to observe and version relocating items; geometric operations & digicam versions; part detection; beneficial properties detection; attractiveness in images
  • Contains various imaginative and prescient software difficulties to supply scholars with the chance to unravel genuine difficulties. photographs or movies for those difficulties are supplied within the assets linked to this booklet which come with an better eBook
