Implementing edge detector on SAM3x8e ( Arduino Due )

I am looking for minimal porting of OpenCV into SAM3x8e hardware. (.5GB ). Is there a "sample code" somewhere? I can go thru all the core includes step by step but would prefer not to reinvent the wheel. I do not need any GUI related classes, just want to be able to calculate edges. Thanks

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.

Yes, I know that. i WAS asking about minimal OpenCV. I am well aware of limitations of my hardware also. Let's call this closed OK?
