Computer Vision Fundamentals with OpenCV and C#
What you'll learn
- They will be able to develop applications such as barcode reading , text segmentation, object tracking, OCR techniques, document control
- Some C# Programming Language Experience and a laptop
Please meet the first video course ever in Computer Vision Fundamentals covered using C# programming language and OpenCV wrapper OpenCVSharp .
This course will teach you how to enter the wonderful world of computer vision using C# programming language and one of the most widely used open source Computer Vision Library, namely the OpenCV. You will learn in particular, how to utilize a popular C# wrapper of OpenCV, which is the OpenCVSharp.
Once you grasp the fundamentals of Computer Vision following this course, you will then be able to follow the more advanced future courses in Computer Vision and Deep Learning field that I will be recording.
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of image processing which will open the way for you to tackle problems such as Barcode Recognition, Webcam programming, Text Segmentation and OCR techniques to read text from scanned documents.
You will learn in particular:
How to read images from disk and display them and save images to disk
Learn about Mat type object of OpenCV
Image pixel manipulations
Drawing on images
Locating a Region of Interest area and Cropping
Gray Scale Image conversion
Image Thresholding Techniques
Image Bitwise operations
Image Filters- Image Convolution
Sobel, Scharr Edge Detection methods
Canny Edge Detection
OpenCV Trackbar Programming for changing input parameters by a user control
Shape Contour detection
Morphological Operations (Erosion, Dilation, Opening, Closing, TopHat, BlackHat)
Convex Hull, Non-Convex defects
Image Histograms, Histogram Plotting
Real-life Applications (step by step explanations and coding ) : Barcode detection and decoding from a food package, Object Tracking via its color using a webcam, text OCR with tesseract plus OpenCV)
Plus the "Assignments" designed to help you get advanced skills in computer vision ( Hand Gesture Detection, Color image channel histograms, Coin counting, Textile Defect Detection)
With my best regards,
Who this course is for:
- Software developers wanting to develop computer vision applications
I have been working in software development industry as an architect and teacher totaling 12 years now. Prior to that I had been working in automotive manufacturing industry for over 15 years as management professional. I have a BSc degree in Textile Machinery Engineering from the Leeds University in the UK and also an MSc degree in Software Engineering . I have been teaching mainly software development with .NET and JAVA technologies to various student groups from banking software developer personnel to IT development company engineers at software institutions.
I am the author of a book published in the UK on developing "Practical Image Processing" projects with C# Programming Language.
I have also good experience in electronics and robotics and designed and built many mechatronics involved testing equipment for the plants I worked.
Nowadays I am very much into designing and building applications using dockerized microservices with aspnetcore.
