This module provides an understanding of the principles and main methods for computer vision, and with practical experience of solving simple computer vision tasks. The principles and main methods of computer vision will be explained along with examples of visual data and how some methods facilate aspects of two/three-dimensional vision. Students will write computer programs to solve vision tasks.
