The company Hella Aglaia Mobile Vision GmbH develops and distributes intelligent visual sensor systems. This also includes the software Cassandra, a tool for fast development of (prototypic) image processing algorithms. Cassandra is implemented in C++ and specializes on the automotive area. Cassandra has changed significantly for version 11: improved multi core support, better synchronization of data sources and sinks, realtime requirements can now be applied, since the system won't be cluttered by too much data and many more features have been implemented. Cassandra will also be released in a community edition. This edition allows academic associates and students to rapidly develop and test their own image processing algorithms. The outstanding feature of Cassandra is the lack of need for programming skills. But still, if you know C++, you can extend Cassandra with your own stations.
With the freely available third party library
OpenCV users have a very
powerful image processing tool. This library will be implemented in Cassandra 11.
The task of the CV group is to reasonably implement OpenCV functions and classes
to Cassandra stations.
The problem is the different concept of OpenCV and Cassandra.
The latter one makes use of data flow graphs.
In contrast, OpenCV requires much more user input and control about parameters
and the use of the classes.
The OpenCV modul core has already been ported to Cassandra by Hella Aglaia. The CV group has implemented the modules calib3d, features2d, video analysis and object detection. With the experience and knowledge of our group, we could add meaningful application scenarios and end user tutorials.
With this extension, Cassandra becomes interesting for general rapid image processing prototyping.
The software is available at this link.
