Computer Vision

Here are several useful websites and/or toolboxes for MATLAB and other languages for Computer Vision. As I run across more, I’ll try to post them here.

The MATLAB Computer Vision toolbox allows you to quickly prototype algorithms to see if they’re feasible for your situation before you spend a lot of time hand-coding algorithms from a classic paper of interest. On Linux, I find that if I can’t read an AVI file, transcoding the AVI to Motion JPEG has always worked for me so far. Procedure for this is found at:
