Elements of computer vision and image processing: image formation and characteristics; feature detection, description, tracking and matching. Introduction to camera models. 2D/3D projective geometry. Single- and dual-view geometry. Camera motion estimation and mapping of sensed environment. Elements of probabilistic estimation. Simultaneous localization and mapping techniques.

Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen

Linear algebra, analysis. Ideally, the student would have attended a computer vision class (such as (EI2223(alt)/EI7120(neu) ), but this is not mandatory.
