OpenCV won't work on any microcontrollers (arduinos or similar); it needs Linux and a lots of libraries.

Fortunately, the edge detector is simple enough to implement yourself. The simplest filter uses the following matrices:

fy = |-1 |  and fx = [ -1 1 ]
     | 1 |

Here is the code (considering that the image is in a width*height linear array). You might adapt it to your needs:

for(pos=0; pos<width*(height-1);pos++){

To get the amplitude and the angle:


The Sobel filter is a little bit more complicated (it uses two 3x3 matrices) but it gives far better results.
