Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course acquaints with the topics of image analysis, which accompany the people in everyday life. These topics are a natural part of development of the society with the transition towards Industry 4.0. In case of completing the course, students gain an overview of modern methods of image analysis. In the case of their deeper interest, the students can attend the master study courses that are focused on digital processing and image analysis in which the students will obtain deeper information.

Teaching methods



The following topics will be discussed: Image analysis in self-driving cars, image analysis in Industry 4.0, detection and recognition of 2D and 3D objects, detection and recognition of people and objects in the security and spy industry.
