OpenCV Computer Vision with Python
Computer Vision can reach consumers in various contexts via webcams, camera phones and gaming sensors like Kinect. OpenCV's Python bindings can help developers meet these consumer demands for applications that capture images, change their appearance and extract information from them, in a high-level language and in a standardized data format that is interoperable with scientific libraries such as NumPy and SciPy.

OpenCV Computer Vision with Python is 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. more »
Android Application Programming with OpenCV
Take a smartphone from your pocket, and within a few seconds, you can snap a photo, manipulate it, and share it with the world. You have just achieved mass production of image data. With a computer vision library such as OpenCV, you can analyze and transform copious amounts of image data in real time on a mobile device. The upshot to this is that you, as developers, can provide mobile users with many new kinds of images, constantly highlighting certain visual features that are of artistic or practical interest. Android is a convenient platform for such experiments because it uses a high-level language (Java), it provides standardized interfaces for sharing image data between applications, and it is mostly open source, so everyone can study its implementation. more »
OpenCV for Secret Agents
OpenCV is a grand collection of image processing functions and computer vision algorithms. It is open source, it supports many programming languages and platforms, and it is fast enough for many real-time applications. What a lot of gadgets we can build with such a handy library!

Taking inspiration from the world of James Bond, this book adds a spark of adventure and computer vision to your daily routine. Protect your home and car with intelligent camera systems that analyze people, cats, and obstacles. Let your search engine praise or criticize the images that it finds. Hear a voice from your phone that responds to your body language. Attune yourself to another person's rhythm by glancing at a display that magnifies a heartbeat or a breath. Learn OpenCV and see your world as never before. more »
Android Application Programming with OpenCV 3
Android Application Programming with OpenCV 3 is a practical, hands-on guide to computer vision and mobile app development. It shows how to capture, manipulate, and analyze images while building an application that combines photography and augmented reality. To help the reader become a well-rounded developer, the book covers OpenCV (a computer vision library), Android SDK (a mobile app framework), OpenGL ES (a 3D graphics framework), and even JNI (a Java/C++ interoperability layer).

Now in its second edition, the book offers thoroughly reviewed code, instructions, and explanations. It is fully updated to support OpenCV 3 and Android 5, as well as earlier versions. Although it focuses on OpenCV's Java bindings, this edition adds an extensive chapter on JNI and C++, so that the reader is well primed to use OpenCV in other environments. more »
