This chapter focuses on images and simple image processing operations and is intended to lead to more advanced image analysis operations that can be used for machine vision in an industrial environment. Perhaps the main purpose of the chapter is to introduce the reader to some basic techniques and notation that will be of use throughout the book. However, the image processing algorithms introduced here are of value in their own right in disciplines ranging from remote sensing to medicine, and from forensic to military and scientific applications.
The images discussed in this chapter have ...
