The OpenVIDIA project implements computer vision algorithms on computer graphics hardware, using Cg, OpenGL and CUDA. The project provides useful example programs which run real time computer vision algorithms on single or parallel graphics processing units(GPUs).
OpenVIDIA utilizes the computational power of the GPU to provide real--time computer vision much faster than the CPU is capable of, and leaves the CPU free to conduct other tasks beyond vision.
This project was founded at the Eyetap Personal Imaging Lab (ePi Lab) at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Group at the University of Toronto. It is being expanded to include contributions from many sources.
