FastCV™ will enable you to add new user experiences into your camera-based apps like:

  • gesture recognition
  • face detection, tracking, and recognition
  • text recognition and tracking
  • augmented reality

The FastCV library offers a mobile-optimized computer vision (CV) library which includes the most frequently used vision processing functions for use across a wide array of mobile devices, even mass-market handsets.

Middleware developers can use FastCV to build the frameworks needed by developers of computer vision apps. Developers of advanced CV application can also use FastCV functions directly in their application.

FastCV is designed for efficiency on all ARM-based processors, but is tuned to take advantage of the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (S2 and above). This gives you the most widely used, computationally intensive vision processing APIs, with hardware acceleration and better performance on mobile devices.
