Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Android-opencv

Apps Description
Android-opencv is an open source Android project which is an attempt at a modern port of OpenCV to Android. The developers are using recent trunk sources from OpenCV and building them with a modified Android NDK, by crystax. The crystax ndk has support for STL and exceptions, and so fits the new OpenCV structure nicely.

Using the NDK, OpenCV may be built for the android platform. The opencv port is in svn/trunk/opencv. It is essentially a snapshot of the opencv trunk – rev 3096. In the future this will be made compatible with trunk, but for simplicity we are freezing opencv until this works consistantly.

Due to recent advances in the Android OS, the developers are taking advantage of features available in 1.5 onward. Also, some features only available in 2.1 and up are being used for the CVCamera demo. We will try to have code that runs on phones lower than 2.1 one, but for now, the features in 2.1 and 2.2 are too temping to use (faster camera previews, hardware floating point and native OpenGL ES 2.0).
