About the course

Vision is a complex process that includes many interacting components involved, for example, with the analysis of color, depth, motion, shape and texture of objects, and with the use of visual information for recognition, locomotion, and manipulation. In this course we focus on how to use video cameras to extract certain physical properties of the visible environment. Algorithm complexity and robustness are two important issues addressed. High emphasis is put on the use of distance and depth images directly from a camera and how this can be used together with regular images.
