Industrial Computer Vision (Course No. 65)

OpenCV Library, Usage in Image Processing  

Often you have precise ideas or requirements for a machine vision task. That may be a velocity measurement of moving objects, pattern recognition in a certain environment, monitoring of people, or the like. But where do you start? How do you succeed without paying expensive licenses, without getting into a platform dependency or into any other annoying limitation?

SSP uses OpenCV in its vision sytsems, an open-source image processing library, which sets standards in industrial applications. For almost every typical task, OpenCV has a solution ready.


Pattern matching example.

Date: on demand
Duration of the course: 1 day
Location: Dübendorf (near Zürich, Switzerland)
Language: German (English on request)
Price: CHF 975, incl. documentation and lunch. An O-3000 camera is also included in the price.


This course enables the participant to implement basic machine vision tasks using OpenCV on his system.


  • Introduction into machine vision and image processing.
  • What is OpenCV, how do I use it?
  • The modules in OpenCV.
  • Basic algorithms (edge detection, pattern matching, etc.).
  • Other important algorithms (camera clibration, white balance, etc.).


Basic software engineering know-how, particularly in the C/C++ programming language is required.

If you plan to use OpenCV on our VisionBox, we recommend course no. 61 as a preparation.
