Everyone who has attempted to write a computer program knows how challenging it could be. Any application that helps ease the stress of developing applications and speeding up the development procedure is welcomed by the programming community. This application is designed to provide various open source algorithms that enable programmers to integrate advanced capabilities to their software. The application supports various types of a programming language such as C++, C, Python, and Java. Most of the algorithms are focused on real-time applications that take advantage of the multi-core processing capabilities of modern computers.
The program is designed in a modular form that serves the various needs of different programmers. Some of the modules include the “Core” which presents basic data structure and functions and others line the Imgproc, Video, Calib3d, Features2d, and Highgui which are designed to accomplish different programming tasks. For instance, the Video module consists of various algorithms for background abstraction operations and motion estimation while the components in the Imgproc modules control image processing systems, filtering, and editing options. This program adds value to the work of application developers.
OpenCV is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in components & libraries category and is available to all software users as a free download.
