Lagi iseng-iseng belajar image processing (computer vision secara umum) sebagai pengisi waktu senggang.
Mari silahkan ditambahkan.
OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions for real time computer vision.
* OpenCV is released under a BSD license, it is free for both academic and commercial use.
* The library has >500 optimized algorithms (see figure below). It is used around the world, has >2M downloads and >40K people in the user group. Uses range from interactive art, to mine inspection, stitching maps on the web on through advanced robotics.
There were several goals for OpenCV at the outset:
* Advance vision research by providing not only open but also optimized code for basic vision infrastructure. No more reinventing the wheel.
* Disseminate vision knowledge by providing a common infrastructure that developers could build on, so that code would be more readily readable and transferable.
* Advance vision-based commercial applications by making portable, performance-optimized code available for free –with a license that did not require commercial applications to be open or free themselves.
Who Own OpenCV?
Although Intel started OpenCV, the library is and always was intended to promote commercial and research use. It is therefore open and free, and the code itself may be used or embedded (in whole or in part) in other applications, whether commercial or research. It does not force your application code to be open or free. It does not require that you return improvements back to the library –but we hope that you will.
