Hi everyone,

I"m new to openCV and before I start with it I want to ask the following; For my engineering project I need to real-time track a pallet and augment some boxes on it. I have two more months to accomplish this, but you have to take into account that I never used openCV or a similar library in my entire life. The project is mobile, but I read there is an openCV API for Android, thus that shouldn't be the problem..

My question to you: is something like this (tracking+augmenting) possible in a short timespan? Or is it very timeconsuming and does it take months to learn openCV?

Kind regards, Frédéric

You don't have to be a genius to understand how to use libraries. There are a lots of tutorials to get started with OpenCV. There are a lots of functions, so the documentation could be intimidating at first, but finally you'll realize that you won't use only a small part of those functions. As tracking is an essential problem in image processing, you'll find several samples that could help you. Finally, I think that OpenCV is one of the best written image processing libraries available, so learning it and getting results is much easier than using any other library, or than trying to implement your own processing functions. Goood luck and welcome to the club :)
