OpenCV, is an open source library for computer vision. Computer vision rapidly growing and its products are proven as up to date technology.
There are plenty of tools to manage and handle computer vision but OpenCV is an unique and simple library floating on C++ platform has many built in functions to perform variety of operations. OpenCV is library of programming functions mainly focused on real time image processing.
Image processing has an incredibly wide range of applications which have to perform smoothly. A faster rate of processing is in huge demand, and to meet those demands the codes need to be shorter and effective. Hence, the OpenCV library is the best to keep it running with relatively shorter length of codes performing great tasks. It is so simple that user need not have high amount of knowledge in that domain. A basic coding knowledge can do wonders using this library. OpenCV runs on most of the OS at present, and fits almost all IDE’s.
