This article is a tutorial for setting up OpenCV 3.0.0 on Yocto with Intel® Edison. We will build OpenCV 3.0.0 on Edison Breakout/Expansion Board using a Windows/Linux host machine. In this article, we will enable Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives ( IPP ) and Intel® Threading Building Blocks ( TBB ) to optimize and parallelize some OpenCV functions. For example, cvHaarDetectObjects(...) , an OpenCV function that detects objects of different sizes in the input image, is parallelized with the TBB library. By doing this, we can fully utilize the dual-core of Edison.
We describe how to use Intel® System Studio 2015 to build the OpenCV 3.0 based embedded application on Intel platforms. In this paper, we have considered a sample code that is part of OpenCV, how to use different components of Intel® System Studio to build OpenCV sample code.
