Course overview

The aim of this course is to provide the attendee with an overview of the fundamentals of image processing and computer vision software techniques as a precursor to further research, study and development within this domain. The course is themed around the development of image processing from a software development perspective and includes practical lab sessions on image processing software development using a C/C++ software environment in addition to lecture/tutorial type sessions.

The most powerful method of sensing available to humans is vision. In computing visual information is represented as a digital image. In order to process visual information in computer systems we need to know about processing digital images. Here we focus upon the task of low-level visual processing in the digital form and how to implement such techniques in software.

The course will be delivered as a series of short lectures, tutorials and practical lab sessions in which students will develop a range of practical image processing algorithms using the C/C++ software environment. Presented lecture content is supported by "live" in-lecture image processing demos, the program source code for which is made available to delegates to form part of the practical lab sessions. Lab sessions are PC based using C/C++ programming to perform image processing from images, videos and PC connected cameras.


On successful completion of this module, the attendee will be able to:

  • understand digital image representations
  • understand and implement a range of image transforms
  • understand and implement image processing in the frequency domain
  • implement basic feature extraction and matching
  • understand the effects of noise on all aspects of digital imaging and implement a range of noise reduction filtering approaches
  • understand and appreciate the broader application implications of a given image processing solution for a particular industrial application.


Programming (in C/C++ with Open CV)

  • image loading and display
  • applying image transforms
  • image manipulation
  • writing images and videos
  • live image processing from a connected camera

Imaging: applications/representation/hardware/sampling/noise

Image geometry and locality

Operations upon images

Mathematical Background: Camera projection/convolution


  • arithmetic/logical operations
  • thresholding/Fourier Transform
  • image convolution/correlation matching/de-convolution
  • using image histograms for comparison
  • high pass filtering/low pass filtering/band-pass filtering
  • colour transforms - RGB and HSV colour spaces


  • logarithmic and exponential transforms/gamma correction
  • histogram transforms: contrast stretch/equalisation/matching
  • homomorphic filtering
  • edge enhancement
  • noise characteristics and noise reduction filtering

Who should attend?

The course will be of interest to those in the following job roles:

  • imaging engineer
  • vision processing engineer
  • software engineer
  • programmer
  • vision or image processing scientist
  • medical imaging professional
  • embedded engineer
  • embedded software engineer.

A working knowledge of C/C++ programming is assumed for course attendees.

Previous delegates have come from various industries including:

  • industrial inspection/manufacturing
  • security/defence/transport imaging
  • robotics
  • weather and environmental monitoring (remote sensing)
  • medical imaging.
