New title for Communication and Information Engineering

Introduction to digital image processing

By William K. Pratt.
TA1632.P917n, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
The textbook examines the basic technologies needed to support image processing applications, including the characterization of continuous images, image sampling and quantization techniques, and two-dimensional signal processing techniques. It then covers the two principle areas of image processing: image enhancement and restoration techniques and extraction of information from an image. [As taken from Amazon]

Computer vision technology in the food and beverage industries

Title: Computer vision technology in the food and beverage industries
Author:  Sun, Da-Wen
Call number: TP370.5.C738
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
Contributors mostly from the science and engineering side, but also the food and agriculture side, describe some of the ways computer vision could be and is being used in processing operations and quality control in the food and beverage business. The topics include hyperspectral and multispectral imaging, image processing techniques, computer vision for automatic sorting, detecting and removing foreign bodies, the image analysis of food microstructure, real-time ultrasound imaging methods for the quality control of meat, fish, evaluating grain quality, and developing a multispectral imaging system for evaluating the quality of cereal gains and grain products.
