OpenCV is an open and free computer vision library available on sourceforge that I started at Intel Research and is now supported by a large community with financial support from Willow Garage, a robotics research institute/incubator located near Stanford.? I will overview some computer vision basics then walk through OpenCV, which is described in detail in the new O’Reilly book: “Learning OpenCV: Computer Vision with the OpenCV Library“.? I will discuss current vision research at Willow Garage, showing videos and probably a demo or two along the way.
I will also discuss ROS, our open-source Robot Operating System, still in alpha development,? which is a fully distributed OS for robotics that comes with many applications in control, navigation, planning, manipulation, machine learning and perception.
