Description

Based on the highly successful 3-volume reference Handbook of Computer Vision and Applications, this concise edition covers in a single volume the entire spectrum of computer vision ranging form the imaging process to high-end algorithms and applications. This book consists of three parts, including an application gallery, and is accompanied by a companion website

Key Features

* Bridges the gap between theory and practical applications
* Covers modern concepts in computer vision as well as modern developments in imaging sensor technology
* Presents a unique interdisciplinary approach covering different areas of modern science
* An accompanying companion website provides 3-D models, image material in Tiff format and Movies in Apple Quicktime, Microsoft AVI, or MPEG format

Readership

Graduate students, researchers, and engineers in the areas of computer vision and robotics.
