Machine Vision: Automated Visual Inspection and Robot Vision
by David Vernon
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1991
Number of pages: 260
Machine vision is a multidisciplinary subject, utilizing techniques drawn from optics, electronics, mechanical engineering, computer science, and artificial intelligence. This book is an introduction to Machine Vision which will allow the reader quickly to comprehend the essentials of this fascinating topic. Emphasis will be placed on the fundamental tools for image acquisition, processing, and analysis; a range of techniques, dealing with very simple two dimensional systems, through more sophisticated two-dimensional approaches, to the three-dimensional robot vision, will be explained in some detail.

Visual Reconstruction presents a unified and highly original approach to the treatment of continuity in vision. The book introduces two new concepts: the weak continuity constraint and the graduated nonconvexity algorithm.

The book is the only account of what the bee actually detects with its eyes. The erratic path to understanding makes interesting reading for anyone with an analytical mind who thinks about the methods of science or the engineering of seeing machines.

This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects that we wish to estimate.

The idea behind this book is to give an easily accessible entry point to hands-on computer vision with enough understanding of the underlying theory and algorithms to be a foundation for students, researchers and enthusiasts.
