Course Description:
This course emphasizes on the application of processing and analysis of digital images. There are practically

unlimited applications of this course in real life. Some of these include the Image Restoration, Satellite Image Analysis for Planning and remote sensing, Security and Surveillance Applications by detecting, tracking and recognizing certain objects, Medical Applications, Forensic Applications as well as Robotic Vision etc. The techniques and the algorithms used for such applications will be discussed in this course.

Course Outcomes/Objectives:
The primary objective of the course is to provide students with the skills and knowledge to apply different processing algorithms on digital images in order to develop different applications. With a high percentage of practical tasks during this course will allow the students to gain expertise in MATLAB and/or OpenCV library.

Text Books: There is no single Text Book for this course. However, major portions of concepts are carried from the following books. Digital Image Processing by Rafael Gonzalez and Richard E Woods, 3rd Edition, 2007. Fundamentals of Digital Image Processing by Anil K. Jain, Prentice Hall, 2nd Edition, 2005. Digital Image Processing using MATLAB by Rafael Gonzalez and Richard E Woods, 2nd Edition, 2009. Learning OpenCV: Computer Vision with the OpenCV Library, 1st Edition, 2008.
