Dear Community,

We would like to draw your attention to a new open-source library with
efficient solutions to calibrated geometric vision problems: OpenGV. It
contains minimal, non-minimal, central (single-camera), and non-central
(multi-camera) absolute and relative camera pose computation algorithms, as
well as a few triangulation and point-cloud alignment procedures. The
library also contains a RANSAC-solver for each type of problem. The
interface is based on the adapter pattern, such that inclusion into other
libraries/projects should be easy. A comfortable mex-interface makes all
algorithms available in Matlab as well, and automatic benchmarking routines
make it easy to compare all algorithms against each other. There are no
licensing restrictions.

Interested? Library and tutorial pages can be found under:


OpenGV will also be presented at this year's IEEE International Conference
on Robotics and Automation, Hong Kong.

Best Regards,
Laurent Kneip
