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.
