The book "Machine Vision Algorithms and Applications - Second, Completely Revised and Enlarged Edition" was written by MVTec and published by Wiley-VCH-Verlag in January 2018 (ISBN: 978-3-527-41365-2).
The second edition of this successful machine vision textbook has been completely updated, revised, and expanded by 35% to reflect the developments of recent years in the fields of image acquisition, machine vision algorithms and applications.
The new content includes, but is not limited to, a discussion of new camera and image acquisition interfaces, 3D sensors and technologies, 3D reconstruction, 3D object recognition, and state-of-the-art classification algorithms. The authors retain their balanced approach with sufficient coverage of theory and a strong focus on applications.
All examples are based on the latest version of the machine vision software HALCON 13.
Carsten studied computer science at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and received his PhD degree from TUM in 1998. In 1996, he co-founded the company MVTec, where he heads the Research department.
