TK8155 - Advanced Visual Perception Systems


Lessons are not given in the academic year 2024/2025

Course content

The course is given every second year, next time in autumn 2023. The course builds on the basic knowledge gained from the robotic vision course TTK4255 with a focus on motion estimation, non-linear estimation methods and object recognition, the underlying theoretic foundation, and implementation skills. The course is given in English.
