|CREDITS||5 credits during the 1st year of 10635 ROBOTICS ENGINEERING (LM-32) GENOVA|
|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||INF/01|
|TEACHING LOCATION||GENOVA (ROBOTICS ENGINEERING )|
The course is about image processing and computer vision techniques for 3D static and dynamic scene interpretation and to discuss applications to object tracking, depth perception, object recognition and automatic guidance
This course presents the fundamentals in computer vision. Topics include camera modelling, camera calibration, image processing, pose estimation, multi view geometry, visual tracking, and vision based calibration.
The aim of the course is to provide a broad introduction to different core aspects of computer vision, including camera modelling, camera calibration, image processing, pose estimation, multi view geometry, visual tracking, and vision based calibration.
At the end of the course the student will be able to understand the main theoretical concepts and to design and implement classical computer vision algorithms. The course will also provide an overview of the main application domains, with a special reference to the robotics scenario.

All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The course is organized in theory classes and practical (hands-on) classes.
Practical activities cover about 1/3 of the course. The goal of such activities is presented in class by the instructors, and should be completed by the students as a homework. They can be carried out individually or in groups; some of them are associated with an assignment and constitute a continuous assessment of the student's work.
The final assessment of the theory part is carried out through a final written exam.
