The OpenCV library is a collection of routines intended for real-time computer vision, released under the BSD License, free for both private and commercial use. The library has a number of different possible applications including object recognition and tracking.
This talk will walk attendees through the cross-compiling and building a static distribution of the library which you can link to your application and make use of from both the iPhone Simulator and the iPhone (and iPod touch) device itself.
We’ll then go on a discuss how to use the OpenCV library to build a simple application to perform face recognition on images taken directly using the iPhone’s own camera.
This presentation is an walks the attendees through cross-compiling and building the OpenCV library for the iPhone. It assumes some experience with programming the iPhone and with Objective-C, and experience with the command line build tools. Previous experience cross-compiling for code for multiple platforms is not required. It would suit experience iPhone developers.
Alasdair Allan is the author of Learning iPhone Programming and iPhone Sensor Programming published by O’Reilly Media. He is a senior research fellow in Astronomy at the University of Exeter, and as part of his work there he is building a distributed peer-to-peer network of telescopes which, acting autonomously, will reactively schedule observations of time-critical events. On the side, Alasdair runs a small technology consulting business writing bespoke software, building open hardware and providing training, and is currently developing a series of iPhone applications to monitor and manage cloud based services and distributed sensor networks.
