There are lots of great material on Computer Vision subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Computer Vision that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Computer Vision books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Computer Vision subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Computer Vision and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Computer Vision books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Computer Vision.
|1. “Robot Vision” by B.K. P. Horn
Book Review: This book demonstrates the interaction between computer vision and robot vision on mobile systems. Robot vision addresses autonomous behavior of a technical system supported by visual sensoric information. Visual robotics is directed towards control and automization. The data in this book is provided by the researchers from New Zealand and Germany and also by the participants of 2008 workshop who are from Europe, USA, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.
|2. “Vision” by D. Marr
Book Review: This book provides a general framework for understanding visual perception and deals with the broader questions about the study of brain and its functions. The book deals with the author’s creativity, intellectual power and the ability to integrate insights and data from neuroscience, psychology and computation. This book is very useful for the newer generation of students and scientists. The book contains the framework at different levels which are computational level, algorithmic level and hardware implementation level. The book integrates knowledge from cognition and computation in order to understand vision and brain.
|3. “Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications” by Richard Szeliski
Book Review: This book describes various techniques that are used to analyze and interpret images. The book also illustrates real world applications like medical imaging, image editing, stitching. The book provides a scientific approach to basic vision problems and analyses the problems using statistical models and rigorous engineering techniques. Exercises are presented at the end of every chapter with many testing algorithms. This book is suitable for graduate and undergraduate courses in computer science engineering.
