Computer based instrumentation and micro controllers, FYS4240 / FYS3240

FYS4240 / FYS3240, is all about how Micro-controllers, PC Processors and busses are made and gives you a very wide perspective in choice of connection technologies and micro controllers. Topics from internal structure of micro controllers to interfaces on it and parallel programming on multi core / multi processor machines. It also includes LABView and C programming for AVR micro controllers in the lab assignments. This course is recommended to take by all electronics, Robotics students and I would have a much wider point of view if I had taken this course in the beginning of my studies (something that did not happen because of lack of communication between physics department and departments of informatic). Here you can download the exam paper for spring 2011. Continue reading

OpenCV installation Tutorial, MS Visual C++ 2008

Installing OpenCV might sound very easy when you read it on some forums/websites, but there are some small changes in most of these tutorials that prevent the connection between OpenCV and MS Visual C++. In this tutorial we(my dear friend Puya Afsharian and I) try to guide you through the installation of these two products and the right way to make them talk with each other.

Although people say it is easy to make OpenCV 2.2 to work with MS Visual C++ 2010, but we did not get it to work properly while it seems that MS visual c++ 2008 works perfect with OpenCV 2.1. Here are the download links for both products :

OpenCV 2.1 : http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencvlibrary/files/opencv-win/2.1/
This file is modified to work with MS Visual C++ 2008 and therefore there is no need to install CMake again.

MS Visual C++ 2008(Free of charge) : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=a5c84275-3b97-4ab7-a40d-3802b2af5fc2&displaylang=en
