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 2,500 optimized algorithms with the latest technology and a comprehensive set of computer vision and machine learning algorithms.

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

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 view: Depth perception from 2 cameras
  • From the transaction DoingSi (SFM)
  • Motion tracking
  • Augmented reality

To support some of the above areas, opencv is a statistical machine learning that includes the following library includes:

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