• Free Software in Vision

    My research area at school is distributed smart cameras, a field which is primarily rooted in computer vision. Despite having access to a range of expensive proprietary software libraries by virtue of having purchased the equipment, most of my computer vision work uses a stack of free software running on Gentoo Linux. For interfacing to […]

    Things are going well after the first week working with OpenCV. I have no proper complaints about the library, but I still have that uneasy feeling one gets when using something so high-level. It is particularly acute in this case, as computer vision problems are notoriously ill-posed and, having researched many of them heavily, I […]

  • OpenCV, Day One

    I’ve been building on my research lab’s computer vision codebase for a couple years now, slowly adding functionality as it’s needed to get some experiment or other done. It’s built on National Instruments’ LabWindows/CVI IDE, along with their image acquisition and low-level CV stuff, so it’s strictly Windows-based and the code is basically useless in […]
