Abstract We have developed an undergraduate Machine Vision laboratory under the sponsorship from National Science Foundation, Cognex Corporation, and Florida Atlantic University. The laboratory supports mainly a 3-credit senior-level machine vision course called Introduction to Machine Vision. Most of the proposed lab experiments are design-oriented and hence open-ended. The students, after learning the basics, devise their own schemes to accomplish their task objectives using the available lab equipment and software packages, thus greatly enhancing their ability to solve real-world engineering problems. In addition to the Machine vision course, the laboratory also supports a number of other undergraduate courses, including a freshman course (Fundamentals to Engineering), a sequence of senior Engineering Design Courses, and a summer course (Picture Processing) for gifted high school students.

1 The project is sponsored by National Science Foundation under ILI grant #9850660.
