Android and Open CV

22 Jan

Open CV cannot only be ported on pc running Ubuntu or windows but also there are people doing projects porting Open CV on different platforms.One of the most famous is porting Open CV to android and develop application using it.So, this post is regarding “Porting Open CV on Android”

For those who doesn’t even slightest bit of what Android is and how the applications are developed over Dont worry just read a little bit from Here.By this point I assume that you know basics of Android. 🙂

Here is one of the detailed process of how to port. This from one the student of Stanford University.Actually Stanford University started this project a long back and have a dedicated work force over it. Please follow through the process. Later on I will be uploading a smaller process of porting but currently this is the  standard way.

Application of Android and open CV are great and quite challenging. But motivation behind doing  is the portability. 😉


Install open CV in ubuntu:”Simplest way”

22 Jan

I have been searching through the wide domain of Internet on how to install open CV and found many blogs with atleast 8-10 steps.If you miss one or if it doesnt work its really frustrating 😛 . 

So, after this search found the simplest way

1. sudo apt-get install libopencv-*

if you want python integration also

2. sudo apt-get install python-opencv

3. sudo apt-get install python-numpy  

# I have installed opencv in ubuntu 11.10 running on beagleboard-xm so if you find problem post it as comment. I’ll try solving it.

Install OpenCV in windows

5 Jan

Well, I am not an OS dependent guy.So, always switch from ubuntu-> windows -> Debian and lots more.Why restrict ourselves for developing also.

Being said that, in this post there is link to install OpenCv in windows for python. This link is the easiest way to install, instead of downloading visual studio C++ and the combining it with OpenCV” 

I don’t own anything and I am internet wanderer.
