Two new demonstration applications uploaded into CVS

Two demonstration applications using the Intel Open Computer Vision Library (OpenCV) have been uploaded in the CVS repository.

The CAMSHIFT demonstration (CVS module CamshiftDemo) illustrates a now classical face tracking method based on color.

Haar detection demo (CVS module: HaarDetectionDemo) illustrates the use of boosted classifiers for object detection (very successful with faces).

Both demonstrations introduce new modules that will be contributed to the MFSM web site shortly.... read more

Welcome to WCCV!

The webcam computer vision (WCCV) project focuses on computer vision algorithms and systems that follow the web cam paradigm: cheap, robust and efficient. It will comprise designs, patterns, cross-platform code, tutorials and examples.

The project leverages the Software Architecture for Immersipresence (SAI) framework for the design of modular systems that perform asynchronous parallel processing of generic data streams.... read more
