I have my robot platform, web cams, and new powerbook all ready to go. Now I get to start working with the vision aspects. I am wonderingwhat tools people have tried and their experiences with them. I'd like to eventually hook up stereo vision and do a great deal of image processing and later object recognition. The most usefull tools would be those that are simple and powerful. Documentation and examples are ofcourse also helpful. There are many tools listed in at sourceforge.net and I've also done some reading on TINA http://www.tina-vision.net/ Basically, what vision tools should i put my efforts into?
