The course will introduce the low level digital techniques for the image processing (histogram operations, linear filters, rank filters, etc.). The logical architecture of a system for the analysis of video sequences will be presented by focusing on the temporal redundancy for the extraction of data of interest. The course will introduce the problems related to the calibration and to the usage of the resources in a smart camera network environment. The course will include exercise sessions as well lab. ones when specific algorithms will be developed by analyzing main features and limits.
