Mastering OpenCV with Practical Computer Vision Projects
I’ve talked about this book before – one of the chapters inspired my vision system for last years FRC competition (you can read it here). I think it’s an excellent book and Packt just sent my an ebook version to do a proper review. Of all the book reviews I’ve done this is the most genuine because I actually found this book useful for work I was doing. They found the right level of being technically interesting, robust and substantial all the while without being too daunting. The source code that accompanies this book is great and I still check back to it when starting new projects (https://github.com/MasteringOpenCV/code). Its well written and won’t take long to read through – I think it is a worthwhile read for anyone doing computer vision work. Program design isn’t something a lot of computer vision researchers / developers think or talk about a lot (at least in my experience) so to see how others lay out the problem can really help with your own work.
