Build Android apps to capture and track objects in 2D and 3D with OpenCV using Packt’s new eBook

November 2013 | Open Source, Web Graphics & Video

Packt is pleased to announce the release of Android Application Programming with OpenCV, a practical, hands-on guide that covers the fundamental tasks of computer vision—capturing, filtering, and analyzing images with step-by-step instructions for writing both an application and reusable library classes. This eBook is 130 pages long and is competitively priced at $16.79.

About the author: Joseph Howse is a software developer at Ad-Dispatch (Canada), where he makes augmented reality games for iOS and Android. He is currently consulting at Market Beat (El Salvador) on an embedded systems project that uses OpenCV for face recognition. He holds three Master's degrees in Computer Science, International Development Studies, and Business Administration.

OpenCV is a library of programming functions mainly aimed at real-time computer vision, developed by Intel, and now supported by Willow Garage and Itseez. OpenCV was designed for computational efficiency with a strong focus on real-time applications.

Android Application Programming with OpenCV looks at OpenCV's Java bindings for Android and dispels mysteries such as which version of these bindings to use, how to integrate with standard Android functionality for layout, event handling, and data sharing, and how to integrate with OpenGL for rendering. Clear, concise, and modular examples help users develop an application that previews, captures, and shares photos with special effects based on color manipulation, edge detection, image tracking, and 3D rendering.

This book will enable readers to develop an extensible library that can be reused in future projects. The filters included in this library will help readers to selectively modify images based on edge detection.The book will help developers track real-world objects, especially printed images, in 2D and 3D space. Using this book, you will learn how to extract camera data from the Android SDK and use it to construct OpenCV and OpenGL projection matrices.

About Packt: Packt is one of the most prolific and fast-growing tech book publishers in the world. Originally focused on open source software, Packt books focus on practicality, recognizing that readers are ultimately concerned with getting the job done. Packt’s digitally-focused business model allows them to publish up-to-date books in very specific areas.
