Translated vision software textbook supports understanding of the subject in Japan

Share this on social media:

The machine vision software textbook Machine Vision Algorithms and Applications, published by Wiley and written by Carsten Steger, Markus Ulrich, and Christian Wiedemann, has been released in Japanese.

'Japan is one of the biggest markets for machine vision,' said Steger, joint owner of MVTec Software and lecturer at Technische Universität München. 'For us, it was important to support the understanding of this very complex technology in this part of the world, for the theory as well as the practical application.' The translation into Japanese was done by MVTec's Japanese distribution partner LinX.

The textbook not only covers the relevant algorithms in theory, but also explains their practical use. The first part covers image acquisition (illumination, lenses, cameras, frame grabbers, and bus systems), while part two deals with the algorithms themselves (data structures, image enhancement, segmentation, morphology, stereo reconstruction, edge extraction, etc). The final part describes actual examples, all accompanied by comprehensive example code (for Halcon) and exercises. A Halcon student version is included.

The textbook is aimed at engineers and students of informatics, electrical engineering, mechatronics, and machine vision, as well as employees of the automation, sensor, and optical industry.
