A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips
Learning the fundamentals of Image processing puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. Learning Computer Vision in LabVIEW is easy to learn, has excellent documentation, and is the base for prototyping all types of vision-based algorithms.

Jobs in image processing are plentiful, and being able to learn computer and machine vision will give you a strong background to more easily pick up other computer vision tools such as OpenCV, Matlab, SimpleCV etc.

Content and Overview

Suitable for beginning programmers, through this course of 26 lectures and over 4 hours of content, you’ll learn all of the Computer Vision and establish a strong understanding of the concept behind Image Processing Algorithms. Each chapter closes with exercises in which you will develop your Own Vision-Based Apps, putting your new learned skills into practical use immediately.

Starting with the installation of the LabVIEW Vision Development Toolkit, this course will take you through the main and fundamental Image Processing tools used in industry and research. At the end of this course you will be able to create the following Apps:

  • App 1 - Counting M&Ms in an Image,

  • App 2 - Color Segmentation and Tracking,

  • App 3 - Coin Blob detection

  • App 4 - Blob Range Estimation

  • App 5 - Lane Detection and Ruler Width Measurement

  • App 6 - Pattern or Template Matching to detect Complex Objects

  • App 7 - Object Tracking

  • App 8 - Bar code Recognition

  • App 9 - Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

With these basic and advanced algorithms mastered, the course will take you through the basic operation of the theory behind each algorithm as well how they applied in real world scenarios.

Students completing the course will have the knowledge to create functional and useful Image Processing Apps.

Complete with working files, datasets and code samples, you’ll be able to work alongside the author as you work through each concept, and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon finishing the course. We also offer a full Udemy 30 Day Money Back Guarantee if you are not happy with this course, so you can learn with no risk to you.

it was a very good course with full of necessary content, i definitely prefer this course to anyone wants handful of experience in image processing.

Fred9 July 2020

Very interesting subject. Good course. This is not a course for beginners but still easy to follow. A bit too quick to follow successive operations once in Labview. Additional explanations could also be given before connecting or updating objects properties. All in all very good course. Thanks.

Nathan19 June 2020

Intros to the videos are way to loud! The volume really needs to be normalized between the presenter and the intros. Overall a good course if you are learning to use NI Vision just to get started. I really wish they had gone into more details but perhaps that is for another video.

Arda23 May 2020

Not very detailed. Can be used as a general information source. And the intros at the beggining are terrible.

David7 February 2020

Great course loads of detail in Vision assistant. With no previous in vision assistant, I'm now able to get started in building my own vision applications.

Vinicius14 January 2020

It represents a somewhat good introduction. The questions seemed out of place, with topics that weren't discussed yet. If you're considering starting using NI Vision (and know a thing or two about Computer Vision), this is a good start.

Lester18 November 2019

The explanation and background of what machine and computer vision is very informative for me, I initially thought it was the same thing

Izzati15 November 2019

It is good for people who already have an image processing background and have done machine vision using different software (eg MATLAB or OpenCV) and would like to expand their skills using other programming like LabVIEW.

Fernando23 July 2019

I received the vision course from NI, and in my opinion this course explains LabVIEW's Vision development module better than the course I took at NI. This course explains vision in more detail and gives practical examples on how to use it. Great content, keep it up. Thanks for all yuor help.

William14 June 2019

I'm being picky here, overall I'm really enjoying it, he knows the topic well and presents very well! But I am finding things move too fast.. why he selects what he does when setting up the assistant is not always clear. Many options are "pick this one, because i find it works best" but what are my other options? why is this one best? in lecture 14 when he "jumped ahead", "you can build it your self" that took a long time for me to build, back and forth in the video multiple times to get it right as he had not introduces us to many of the modules on how to build it, many options where new.. more time could have been spent on what and why he choose that option. Please don't take this as harsh, it's just feed back and I did manage to get through everything so you have shown enough to do it all. Overall Great instructor, well worth it. Ps Congrats on the paper for line detection Impressive stuff!

Aditi4 October 2018

It has given me a good insight on Machine Vision in LabVIEW. Would like to explore further and I am eager to learn Machine learning or Artificial Intelligence in LabVIEW. If possible you can upload something related to it too....

Anush28 September 2018

I learned amazing applications to build,cousreware and presentation it's very helpful to learn with easy examples.I like it.

Pablo2 February 2018

In my case I'm relatively happy with this course, because I was searching one about Computer Vision in Labview, and I purchased it with a discount (final price 15 Euros, instead of 200). But I wouldn't recommend to purchase it for 200 Euros, due to the following reasons: - It's an introduction to computer vision in labview, using the Vision Assistant Module, it doesn't go in depth. - The examples are quite basic, it would be great to have more complicated exercises or projects, in order to understand better all the options and settings. Also, I would recommend to implement all the examples to labview with real time applications or recorded videos. In some cases it has been done, but, for example, in object tracking it would have been cool to apply this in live (instead of record a number of frames, and apply it in the vision assistant tool). To summarize it all, it's a good course for beginners in labview, but it should have more exercises, mini projects, and deeper explanations. For example, In OCR and object tracking, real live applications would be an improvement. It's real value isn't worth 200 Euros/Dollars right now, it requires more explanations and exercises in order to achieve that.

Oana14 January 2018

I like to create software using LabVIEW so I intend to improve my knowledge and abilities. I think this course provides me useful and practical examples related to a an interesting topic as is computer vision. In the past, I worked on such a project so I want to find out even more ways to benefit from the techniques of picture recognition and image processing.

Stephen14 August 2017

Useful course. I am using the Macintosh version of Labview which does not have the VI Vision package and was unable to work through the examples. Comment to the instructor: Don't read the slides verbatim. It wastes time and does not allow for the details that can be revealed between-the-lines. Would recommend this course to all Labview users.
