Development of RT-Components for OpenCV


This document introduces wrapping the OpenCV library in an RT-Component using VC9.


OpenCV is a free computer vision library that was developed by Intel. See Wikipedia for more details.

RT-Components that will be created

  • Flip component: The OpenCV library contains a function called cvFlip() that inverts an image. This component will wrap the cvFlip() function.
  • ObjectTracking component: Using the OpenCV library, this component will track an object selected with the mouse. The component will display the tracked object, output the image containing the tracking and output the movement of the tracked object.
