Product Description

From the Back Cover

Object detection, tracking and recognition in images are key problems in computer vision. This book provides the reader with a balanced treatment between the theory and practice of selected methods in these areas to make the book accessible to a range of researchers, engineers, developers and postgraduate students working in computer vision and related fields. Key features: Explains the main theoretical ideas behind each method (which are augmented with a rigorous mathematical derivation of the formulas), their implementation (in C++) and demonstrated working in real applications. Places an emphasis on tensor and statistical based approaches within object detection and recognition. Provides an overview of image clustering and classifi cation methods which includes subspace and kernel based processing, mean shift and Kalman fi lter, neural networks, and k–means methods. Contains numerous case study examples of mainly automotive applications. Includes a companion website hosting full C++ implementation, of topics presented in the book as a software library, and an accompanying manual to the software platform.

Format: Hardcover
I found this to be an excellent book for computer vision practitioners, applicable to both academia and industry. The book focuses mainly on tensor approaches for object detection and recognition, as well as tracking, classification, clustering, etc. There are many real-world examples, mostly for the automotive industry. For the interested readers, full mathematical derivations and theoretical analyses are provided, to facilitate in-depth understanding. The C++ resources in the book and on the web are very valuable to aid in quick deployment of the techniques discussed in the book. Overall, highly recommended.
