LuaCV is OpenCV library wrapper for Lua language. Main goal is to access fast image processing library to light-weight, non-type language. Thanks to CMake project is a much easier to compile it under many OS platforms which are supported by OpenCV.

LuaCV is being developed at faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication of Brno University of Technology in Czech republic.

Working with: Lua 5.2, OpenCV 2.2-2.4

LuaCV-0.2.0 (svn rev. 62) is last version compatible with Lua 5.1 but working only with OpenCV 2.2 and below.
