What is OpenCV?

OpenCV is a library of Programming functions used in realtime Computer Vision. Intel Corporation , Willow Garage , Itseez developed by .

OpenCv has more than 2500 optimized algorithms with the latest technology, including a comprehensive set of computer vision and machine learning algorithms.

OpenCv is also used by Companies, Research Groups and Governments.

Companies Using :

Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Sony, Honda, Toyota and more.

OpenCV's application areas include:

  • Egomotion estimated
  • Facial recognition system
  • Mimic recognition
  • Human-computer interaction (HCI)
  • Mobile robotics
  • Understanding of movement
  • Define an object
  • Partitioning and recognition
  • Stereopsis stereo vision: Depth perception from 2 cameras
  • From motion structureSi (SFM)
  • Transaction tracking
  • Augmented reality

To support some of the above fields, OpenCV provides a statistical machine learning library includes:

  • Boosting
  • Bayes classifier
  • Artificial neural networks
  • Vector machine (SVM)
  • Deep neural networks (DNN).
