Computer Vision Toolbox
Design and test computer vision, 3D vision, and video processing systems
Computer Vision Toolbox™ provides algorithms, functions, and apps for designing and testing computer vision, 3D vision, and video processing systems. You can perform object detection and tracking, as well as feature detection, extraction, and matching. You can automate calibration workflows for single, stereo, and fisheye cameras. For 3D vision, the toolbox supports visual and point cloud SLAM, stereo vision, structure from motion, and point cloud processing. Computer vision apps automate ground truth labeling and camera calibration workflows.
You can train custom object detectors using deep learning and machine learning algorithms such as YOLO v2, SSD, and ACF. For semantic and instance segmentation, you can use deep learning algorithms such as U-Net and Mask R-CNN. The toolbox provides object detection and segmentation algorithms for analyzing images that are too large to fit into memory. Pretrained models let you detect faces, pedestrians, and other common objects.
You can accelerate your algorithms by running them on multicore processors and GPUs. Toolbox algorithms support C/C++ code generation for integrating with existing code, desktop prototyping, and embedded vision system deployment.
