Overview

Discover the principles of vision and how robots can be programmed to see.

Programming a robot to see requires understanding the principles of vision, and having mathematical knowledge and programming skills. We start by considering the question, ‘What is vision?’ You’ll learn about human vision and aspects of sight, including light, reflection, perspective and how cameras work. Robot vision relies on these same principles but uses cameras and computers instead of eyes and a brain.

This course assumes that you are familiar with concepts from advanced high-school mathematics or undergraduate engineering.

The course also assumes knowledge of programming. This will help you understand some of the demonstrations in the videos, and is required for the third course in the robotic vision program. This course uses the MATLAB programming language and environment, but your knowledge of programming in other languages can be easily transferred to MATLAB. You can familiarize yourself with MATLAB by enrolling in the MATLAB Onramp tutorial.

Please note that this course includes video content and other visual teaching methods. Blind and visually impaired students may need a helper.

This course contains practice activities in MATLAB. However, you won’t need to download the MATLAB software to complete the course (although if you already have it you are welcome to use it). The MATLAB exercises are embedded within the course, or you can use a version of MATLAB Online for which you’ll be provided a log-in and instructions for importing the Machine Vision Toolbox for MATLAB. You don’t need to own a robot, or have a robot kit, to take this course.
