OpenCV is the most prominent computer vision library and many embedded applications are built using features of OpenCV. It is filled with a lot of features for performing tasks like image registration, tracking, classification and much more. An easy way to improve OpenCV application performance on Intel Architecture is to re build using components of Intel® System Studio like Intel® C++ compiler and Intel® IPP.
I have published an article about how to use Intel® System Studio to build the OpenCV based embedded application on Intel platforms.
Please reply to this thread, if you need any help in bulding OpenCV application uisng Intel System Studio.
