Comparison between Open CV and MATLAB Performance in Real Time Applications


Abstract:The most important operation in the image processing field is detect the objects inside an image or video, which it is used in many applications, especially in real time systems. Real time image processing in modern systems demands fast technologies, and there are variety methods to achieve this goal. This paper compare between the performance of (MATLAB) and (Open CV) to detect circular shapes that have specific color (blue) from live video in a real time. The input is a live video with resolution (640*480) pixels, taken by a web camera, and then processed by a sequence of image processing operations. The results refer to a program written in (Open CV) speed up the system up to 174% more than the same program written in (MATLAB) to do the same job.
