In this introduction to digital imaging technologies, learn how software simulation is used to model image systems components and the human visual system. Gain insight into how imaging technologies handle the requirements of complex biological and psychological processes. Explore the basic tools used in digital imaging and image quality measurement and the value of image systems simulations in neuroscience and industrial vision applications. This course will include a project component.
Non-degree option students are required to take this course for 3 units.
