Lecture 2

We will first consider how to model the effect of noise in images, and show that noise can be reduced by taking the average of several images. Clearly, such integration is precisely what biological systems do. We will then go on to study the simplest of images, namely binary images, and determine those measurements that can be used to distinguish one object from another in a binary image. Most of these notes are adapted from Horn's book on ``Robot Vision'' [2].
