OpenCV was built to provide a common infrastructure for computer vision applications and to accelerate the use of machine perception in the commercial products. OpenCV was originally developed by Intel back in 1999 and is now maintained by Willow Garage and ItSeez. OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions for realtime computer vision, itt uses a BSD license and hence it’s free for both academic and commercial use.
