Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The students will get acquainted with the principles and methods of computer vision. They will learn in more detail selected methods and algorithms of vision and image acquiring. They will also get acquainted with the possibilities of the scanned data processing. Finally, they will learn how to apply the gathered knowledge practically.
The students will improve their teamwork skills, mathematics, and exploitation of the "C", C++, and other languages.

Learning objectives

To get acquainted with the principles and methods of computer vision. To learn in more detail selected methods and algorithms of vision and image acquiring. To get acquainted with the possibilities of the scanned data processing. To learn how to apply the gathered knowledge practically.

Why is the course taught

The goal of the course eduation is to invoke interest among students about the principles, tasks, and methods of computer vision. The scope of the course cannot reach the broad area of computer vision but brings at least "bits"of it and shows also results and direction of research at FIT.
