Now, in its development is supported by researchers from robotics lab Willow Garage. OpenCV based on C / C + + which can be integrated with a variety of programming IDE editor like code:: blocks, Eclipse, Qt, DevCpp, and others also support the python programming language.
For more detailed information please visit the “OpenCV website” or “OpenCV Wiki” and for a tutorial how to integrate OpenCV with “visual editor IDE” as codeblocks, eclipse and qt please read my tutorials on this blog.
