Course title Machine Vision
Acronym 13M041MV
Study programme Electrical Engineering and Computing
Module Electronics
Type of study master academic studies
Lecturer (for classes)
Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
    Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
    ESPB 6.0 Status elective
    Condition Passed exam in subject Digital Image Processing on undergraduate academic studies.
    The goal The aim of the course is to introduce to the students the methods and technologies used in automated systems for measurement and control based on image processing. Special attention is paid to development and implementation of image processing algorithms by means of modern development environments and advanced hardware platforms with accent on industrial applications.
    The outcome Students will gain basic knowledge about methods and elements used in machine vision systems, and procedures of integration of hardware and software components targeting specific functional demands. The acquired knowledge will enable students to independently analyze, project and implement industrial machine vision systems.
