Hey guys!

I'm using the K64f and I wanted to ask if there is any possibility to use OpenCV functions on it?

I've also heard of an alternative "OpenVx". Does someone has experience with this or other alternatives?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Matthias Rödder ,

  You can check the openCV with MCU situation in this link:

OpenCV integrate in MCU - OpenCV Q&A Forum 

 OpenCV isn't portable to microcontroller systems. Current MCUs have similar architecture and computing power as ARM CPUs, but as long as your system can't handle the minimum software requirements, it won't work.

  So, you may can't use the K64 associate with the openCV.

  You may need to use the processor, I find one usage in I.MX6:

Setting Up OpenCV in i.MX6 Based Boards 

Wish it helps you!

If you still have questions about it, please kindly let me know.

Best Regards,

Kerry

If you are looking for a 'OpenCV for Microcontrollers', then have a look at the OpenMV project.

We have this framework sucessfully running on a i.MX RT1052 (Seeed Studio Arch Mix NXP i.MX RT1052 Board | MCU on Eclipse ) using a custom camera adapter board. I would not recommend the K64F for such a computation intensive application: instead look for the i.MX RT which is a much more powerful ARM Cortex M7 running at high frequencies.
