About the Book

The book introduces the readers to the concepts of Computer Vision and Image Processing. We will use Raspberry Pi as a platform to code with Python programming.

The book explores the following Python libraries,

  • scikit-image
  • scikit-video

Also, the book introduces the readers to the following Python libraries,

  • NumPy
  • matplotlib

The Computer Vision concepts introduced in the book are accompanied by easy to follow and well explained code examples. Code examples aid the readers to grasp the Computer Vision concepts. The book is meant for the beginners new to the world of Computer Vision.

Please spread the word about the book. Feedback on my writing and coding style will be much appreciated. Readers' feedback helps me to code, write, and explain better.
