I had generated a random number using the following code in OpenCV 2.4.8.

RNG rng;
cout << rng.uniform(0.0,1.0);

It keeps on generating the same number. Why?

"It keeps on generating the same number. Why?"

you will have to seed the RNG, else it starts with ~0 for seed all the time.

RNG rng(getTickCount());
