SIP provides image processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision routines for SciLab, a Matlab-like matrix-oriented programming environment. SIP is able to read/write images in almost 90 major formats, including JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, FITS, and TIFF. It includes routines for filtering, segmentation, edge detection, morphology, curvature, fractal dimension, distance transforms, multiscale skeletons, and more.
The Pattern Recognition Application Programmer's Interface aims to be a fully-featured, easy-to-use general C++ framework for various pattern recognition tasks, especially image analysis. It features support for many image formats, well-known image analysis methods, classification and feature analysis tools, XML serialization, etc.
libGMUVision is framework for realtime computer vision applications that is designed to allow easier access to Firewire IIDC digital video cameras. It provides a set of C++ bindings for libdc1394 and Qt widgets for building graphical applications that process video streams in real time. A small sample application (Koriander Lite, based on the Coriander project) is included.
The LTI-Lib is an object oriented library with algorithms and data structures frequently used in image processing and computer vision. It was developed at the RWTH-Aachen University as a part of many research projects on computer vision dealing with robotics, object recognition, sign language, and gesture recognition. It provides an object oriented C++ library that includes fast algorithms, which can be used in real applications.
Kognition is an omnifont OCR software for KDE. It is the result of two diploma theses about omnifont optical character recognition which are included as documentation (in German). Due to the fact that each step of the OCR process can be visualized you can get a quick idea of how OCR works and where the problems lie. However the program may be of minor/no use for end users in its current state.
OMCSNetCPP is a C++ API and inference toolkit for accessing OMCSNet, a semantic network mined out of the Open Mind Common Sense knowledge base. The goal of this project is to provide a class library that allows programmers to easily add common sense reasoning capabilities to C++ applications.
The OMCSNet-WordNet project aims to improve the quality of the OMCSNet dataset by using automated processes to map WordNet synonym sets to OMCSNet concepts and import additional semantic linkage data from WordNet. It is based on OMCSNet 1.2, a semantic network and inference toolkit written in Python/Java. OMCSNet currently contains over 280,000 separate pieces of common sense information extracted from the raw OMCS dataset. This project is also based on WordNet, an online lexical reference system that in recent years has become a popular tool for AI researchers.
VXL is a set of portable C++ libraries designed for computer vision research and implementation. Numerics, imaging, and geometry are provided by stand-alone core libraries, with easy to use APIs and sophisticated processing algorithms. Other libraries provide stereo, video, structure from motion, probability modeling, GUI design, classification, robust estimation, feature tracking, topology, 3d imaging, and much more. It is written and used by an international team from academia and industry.
Mimas Toolkit is a C++ computer vision toolkit. It is easy to use and includes tools for edge detection, corner detection, various filters, optic flow, tracking, blob analysis, Web cam tools for real-time applications, and much more. It also includes many implementations of traditional algorithms such as Canny. It was developed for GNU/Linux but as the GUI is largely separate, porting to other platforms should be straightforward.
