"Practical Computer Vision with SimpleCV By Kurt Demaagd, Anthony Oliver, Nathan Oostendorp, Katherine Scott"; O'Reilly Media
A practical guide to get you started in the field of computer vision, this book is pitched to a wide range of readers from the basic enthusiast to professionals seeking to develop applications that use computer vision.
From introducing the concepts behind computer vision to actual practical implementation of these concepts from the simple to the more complex concepts like tracking of moving objects.
All the sample code is written Python using the SimpleCV framework which wraps the OpenCV, NumPy and SciPy libraries. The examples are well thought out and documented. The appendices include day to day use cases for the use of computer vision.
Computer vision applications are on the rise, with line checking cars, driverless cars, number plate recognition, people tracking in the mainstream or on the horizon this book is highly recommended to get you started.
I highly recommend you get yourself a copy, even if its just a small thank you to the authors for the work they put into working on this open source project.
