  • Prof. Dr. Klaus Rinn
Short Description
Cameras and illumination,image transformations, advanced image filters, segmentation, morphological filters. Statistical pattern recognition: regions, descriptors, classifiers.
Learning Objectives

Based on the knowledge of the most important principles and common methods of image processing and pattern recognition, graduates are able to evaluate the applicability of new methods in practice critically. By using the acquired methods they are able to develop solutions of the most important tasks of image processing, in which the interdependence of hard - and software calculation is utilized.

  • Hardware: cameras and illumination
  • Image transformations
  • Advanced image filters
  • Template matching
  • Segmentation
  • Morphological filters
  • Introduction to statistical probability theory: regions, descriptors, classifiers
