  • Basic concepts such as image file formats, scaling and rotation.
  • Colour manipulation such as grey scaling and colour models.
  • Image segmentation using background subtraction, edge detection, filters, etc.
  • Image processing techniques such as Hierarchical Chamfer Distance Transforms, AdaBoost, Histograms and CAMShift.
  • Taking a look at current developments in the field and directions for possible research.   

Prerequisites: Enthusiasm and the ability to think outside of the box.  Any language that has a wrapper for OpenCV should be usable.
