Why DIP using MATLAB?

Importance and necessity of digital image processing stems from two principal application areas: the first being the Improvement of pictorial information for human interpretation and the second being the Processing of a scene data for an autonomous machine perception. The human visual system does not perceive the world in the same manner as digital detectors, with display devices imposing additional noise and bandwidth restrictions. Salient differences between the human and digital detectors will be shown, along with some basic processing steps for achieving translation. Image processing must be approached in a manner consistent with the scientific method so that others may reproduce, and validate, one's results.

Objective of the Course

  • To introduce the participants the basics of Image Processing through MATLAB. In particular, the course will start from simple problems in perspective transformations, edge detection, image enhancement, image filtering, image segmentation, feature tracking and wavelet analysis.
  • To familiarize the participants with basic learning algorithms, techniques & their applications, as well as general questions.
  • Several software libraries in MATLAB and data sets publicly available will be used to illustrate the application of these algorithms.
  • The emphasis will be thus given on Digital Image Processing and Applications.
  • Training with the recent developments in Digital Image Processing.
  • Benefits and Outcomes of the Course

  • To understand the difficulties that the vision problem involves.
  • To design a simple vision system.
  • To Understand the various edge detectors.
  • To Implement several image filtering algorithms.
