This course is delivered over six weeks. Each week will include two video lectures, as well as quizzes and MATLAB exercises.
Week 1: Robot vision and getting images into a computer
Week 2: Image processing and spatial operators
Week 3: Feature extraction and what is colour?
Week 4: Image formation and image geometry
Week 5: 3D vision and advanced image processing operations
Week 6: Vision and motion.
To complete the MOOC you should know some basic programming (either of MATLAB or of an object-oriented programming language) and some of the following areas of maths: matrices, vectors and spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors. We’ve included links to Khan Academy on these topics. We believe this knowledge will be necessary to complete the course, and recommend that you view these before Week 1 begins, but you might prefer to watch them on an ‘as needed’ basis after you view our content.
. basic matrix operations including multiplication and inversion
. zero and identity matrices
. vector transformations with matrices
. familiarity with the concepts of eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
