Introduction: What is VXL?

VXL (the Vision-something-Libraries) is a collection of C++ libraries designed for computer vision research and implementation. It was created from TargetJr and the IUE with the aim of making a light, fast and consistent system. VXL is written in ANSI/ISO C++ and is designed to be portable over many platforms. The core libraries in VXL are: As well as the core libraries, there are libraries covering numerical algorithms, image processing, co-ordinate systems, camera geometry, stereo, video manipulation, structure recovery from motion, probability modelling, GUI design, classification, robust estimation, feature tracking, topology, structure manipulation, 3d imaging, and much more.

Each core library is lightweight, and can be used without reference to the other core libraries. Similarly, the non-core libraries don't depend on more than absolutely necessary, so you can compile and link just the libraries you really need.

For a more detailed description of the libraries see the VXL book.

VXL is developed and used by an international team from academia and industry, including some of the world's leading computer vision experts.


Documentation

Documentation on the whole of VXL

There are two main references for information on the whole of VXL: The documentation search page is useful for quickly finding documentation. You can also download the release 1.0.0 documentation.

VXL guides

These are short guides to specific areas in VXL: xcv and vgui have not changed a lot since the last release of VXL so these guides should be useful for both the release and development versions of VXL.

Download and install

You can download the latest official release vxl-1.6.0

Or get the latest development version from the CVS repository at SourceForge.

The following links may be helpful if you work under Windows.


Problems and where to get help

FAQs

There is a Build FAQ. There are other FAQs in the VXL book.

Mailing list

The VXL mailing lists are at SourceForge. You can find list descriptions, subscription information, and archives there. vxl-users is the best list for bug reports, etc. Please read the vxl-users list policy before posting.

Dashboard

The dashboard is a summary (collated from different machines at different sites in different timezones) of the current build status of VXL. More builds are welcome; just follow the instructions for submitting a build.

Reporting bugs to the mailing list

If you think you have found a bug, or if you have an installation or build problem, please submit a bug report on the vxl-users mailing list. Please check the vxl-users list policy to find out what information will be helpful in sorting out your bug.
