Recently, researchers in vision and image processing have developed quantitative models of both image formation and human perceptual performance which provide new insight into the form and function of image processing and pattern recognition tasks in vision. Research in image processing in Systems Design Engineering is part of an emerging effort to develop a coherent framework for image and signal processing and analysis based on perceptual models.
