AIS2204 - Machine Vision


Course content

The course contains the following topics:

  • Fundamental image analysis
  • Fundamental 3D modelling
  • Practical use of standard libraries for machine vision
  • Object recognition and tracking
  • 3D reconstruction from stereo views
  • Other topics required for achieving intended learning outcomes

Learning outcome


  • The candidate can explain fundamental mathematical models for digital imaging, 3D models, and machine vision.
  • The candidate are aware of the principles of digital cameras and image capture.


  • The candidate can implement selected techniques for object recognition, tracking and 3D reconstruction.

General competence

  • The candidate has a good analytic understanding of machine vision and of the collaboration between machine vision and other systems in robotics.
  • The candidate can exploit the connection between theory and application for presenting and discussing engineering problems and solutions.

Learning methods and activities

Learning activities include lectures, tutorials and lab/project work.

A constructivist approach for learning is endorsed, with focus on problem solving and practical application of theory.
