course outline tentative8
Course Outline (tentative)
  • Camera Calibration
    • Camera parameters
    • 3D to 2D transformation
  • Stereo Vision
    • 3D reconstruction from pairs of 2D images.
  • Two exams (midterm, final)
  • Programming assignments
  • Paper presentation (grad students only)
  • Homework will be assigned but not graded
  • Midterm: ~ 25%

  • You will not use any software package for most assignments.
  • There might 1-2 programming assignments where you would need to use OpenCV.

course policies
Course Policies
  • Lecture slides, assignments, and other useful information will be posted on web.
  • If you miss a class, you are responsible for all material covered or assigned in class. .
  • Discussion of the programming assignments is allowed and encouraged. However, each student should do his/her own work.

Assignments which are too similar will receive a zero.

course policies cont d
Course Policies (cont’d)
  • No late programming assignments willbe accepted unless there is an extreme emergency.
  • A missed quiz/exam may be made up only if it was missed due to an extreme emergency.
  • No incomplete grades (INC) will be given in this course
extra credit
Extra Credit
  • Class participation is highly encouraged and will be rewarded with extra credit.
  • Additional extra credit will be offered to the students who attend the departmental colloquia.
  • You will be reminded in class about upcoming talks but you should also check the colloquia page on a regular basis


academic dishonesty
Academic Dishonesty
  • Your continued enrollment in this course implies that you have read the section on Academic Dishonesty found in the UNR Student Handbook and that you subscribe to the principlesstated therein.


Remember: I can Google too (and I have the copies of everybody’s assignments from the last four years this class was offered)

disability statement
Disability Statement
  • Any student with a disability needing academic accommodations is requested to speak with me or contact the Disability Resource Center (Thompson Building, Suite 101), as soon as possible to arrange for appropriate accommodations.
unauthorized class audio recording or video taping
Unauthorized class audio recording or video-taping
  • Surreptitious or covert video-taping of class or unauthorized audio recording of class is prohibited by law and by Board of Regents policy. 
  • This class may be videotaped or audio recorded only with the written permission of the instructor.  
  • In order to accommodate students with disabilities, some students may have been given permission to record class lectures and discussions. 
  • Therefore, students shouldunderstand that their comments during class may be recorded.
