This chapter contains a brief description of the methods, algorithms, and implementations applied in many fields of computer vision. The graphological analysis and identification of handwritten manuscripts are discussed using the examples of Great Russian writers. A perceptually tuned watermarking using non-subsampled shearlet transform is a contribution in the development of the watermarking techniques. The mobile robot simultaneous localization and mapping, as well as the joined processing of visual and audio information in the motion control systems of the mobile robots, are directed on the robotics’ development. The ambient audiovisual monitoring based on a wide set of methods for digital processing of video sequences is another useful real life application. Processing of medical images becomes more and more complicated due to the enforced current requirements of medical practitioners.
