A practical introduction to computer vision with OpenCV2 by Kenneth Dawson-Howe

By Kenneth Dawson-Howe

Explains the idea at the back of uncomplicated computing device imaginative and prescient and offers a bridge from the idea to useful implementation utilizing the usual OpenCV libraries

Computer imaginative and prescient is a quickly increasing zone and it really is turning into steadily more uncomplicated for builders to use this box end result of the prepared availability of top quality libraries (such as OpenCV 2).  this article is meant to facilitate the sensible use of laptop imaginative and prescient with the target being to bridge the distance among the speculation and the sensible implementation of machine imaginative and prescient. The publication will clarify how you can use the suitable OpenCV library workouts and may be followed through an entire operating software together with the code snippets from the textual content. This textbook is a seriously illustrated, functional advent to an exhilarating box, the purposes of that are changing into nearly ubiquitous.  we're now surrounded by way of cameras, for instance cameras on desktops & capsules/  cameras outfitted into our cellphones/  cameras in video games consoles; cameras imaging tricky modalities (such as ultrasound, X-ray, MRI) in hospitals, and surveillance cameras. This booklet is worried with aiding the subsequent iteration of computing device builders to use most of these photos with a purpose to strengthen platforms that are extra intuitive and engage with us in additional clever ways. 

  • Explains the speculation in the back of uncomplicated desktop imaginative and prescient and offers a bridge from the idea to useful implementation utilizing the normal OpenCV libraries
  • Offers an creation to laptop imaginative and prescient, with sufficient conception to clarify how many of the algorithms paintings yet with an emphasis on sensible programming issues
  • Provides sufficient fabric for a one semester path in laptop imaginative and prescient at senior undergraduate and Masters levels 
  • Includes the fundamentals of cameras and photographs and photograph processing to take away noise, earlier than relocating directly to themes equivalent to photograph histogramming; binary imaging; video processing to notice and version relocating gadgets; geometric operations & digicam types; area detection; beneficial properties detection; popularity in images
  • Contains a number of imaginative and prescient program difficulties to supply scholars with the chance to unravel genuine difficulties. pictures or video clips for those difficulties are supplied within the assets linked to this publication which come with an stronger eBook

Sample text

For example, in YUV420p format 4 bytes of luminance (Y) are transmitted for every 2 bytes of chrominance (1 U and 1 V). g. ). The luminance typically ranges from 0 to 1. The hue describes the colour and ranges from 0 to 360◦ . The saturation S is the degree of strength or purity of the colour and ranges from 0 to 1. In practical implementations, all of these quantities are typically scaled to the 0 to 255 range (although in OpenCV hue values range between 0 and 179). 10 for a visual representation of these axes.

7 Sample arrangement of photosensitive cells in an RGB camera where the red, green and blue boxes represent individual photosensitive cells which are sensitive to wavelengths around red, green, and blue respectively. e. the opposite order to what you might expect). In OpenCV, to efficiently process images we must avoid use of the at function (as this adds significant computational costs). Instead, we must use pointers to the image data within the Mat structures. Unfortunately, this produces code that is hard to understand.

17 Test image (a) after 3x3 local averaging (b), Gaussian smoothing (c), rotating mask (d) and median filtering (e) However, it may be necessary to accept this blurring in order to reduce the noise to an acceptable level. 5); In the case of salt and pepper noise, again the noise will be smoothed into the image and hence this is not the most appropriate filter for such noise. Filter masks can be larger than 3x3, in which case the effect (reduction in noise and increase in blurring) will become more significant.
