III (spring term)

Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

To understand principles of sampling and reconstruction of a signal. To understand and apply Fourier transformation of images. To understand and apply linear space-invariant systems with images. To understand and apply basic digital image processing tasks, such as image restoration, image enhancement, image compression, and image correlation. To understand and apply how edges and interesting points can be extracted from images. To understand segmentation of digital images.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course gives fundamentals of signal processing focusing on digital images. Mathematical principles of image enhancing and restoration are given. The course also illustrates how areas, breaklines and interesting points, such as corners and centers of circles, can be extracted automatically from images.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Examination and assignments

Elaboration of the evaluation criteria and methods, and acquainting students with the evaluation (applies in this implementation): 

To pass the course, you need to have all
assignments accepted, seminar presentation given and examination passed.
The final grade is a combination of
assignment, seminar points and examination grade. The maximum points
from assignments is á 30 points, i.e., total of 150 points. This is scaled (no
rounding) to range [0,5]. If the assignment report is returned after the
deadline, the maximum point from that assignment is 12 points (equals to grade
2). Seminar is a group work and it is graded from 0 to 3 points.

The lowest
grade to pass the examination is 15/30 points. If the examination is passed,
seminar points are added to results (valid for one year).

The final
grade is the rounded average of the assignment and examination grades

examination = 2, assignments = 4.5, grade = 3.25 -> 3

= 5, assignments = 3, grade = 4
