Learn how images are processed and transformed to make a robot see.
Programming a robot to see requires knowing the principles of vision, mathematical knowledge and programming skills. We explore how computers process images, learning the operations required to process an image using MATLAB.
Robotic vision relies on identifying and extracting the features of an image to recognize a shape. You’ll identify the unique features of a shape and its perimeter. We look at some advanced image processing techniques: morphology; and transformations such as scaling and warping. We finish the course with a look at colour and light, and how robots see colour.
What topics will you cover?
