NVIDIA announced this week CUDA support for OpenCV.

OpenCV is a Computer Vision library used in developing advanced applications for robotics, automotive, medical, consumer, security, manufacturing and research fields.

"With the addition of GPU acceleration to OpenCV, developers can run more accurate and sophisticated OpenCV algorithms in real-time on higher-resolution images while consuming less power. This will facilitate the development of scores of new, mainstream Computer Vision applications," the press release said.

Gary Bradski, a senior researcher at Willow Garage, and founder of OpenCV, said, "Computational power in Computer Vision has been a limiting factor not only for the use of recent powerful algorithms in object recognition, tracking and 3D reconstruction, but also has limited the creativity of algorithms people are willing to invent."
