Pattern Recognition

  1. Oct 1, 2008 #1
    Hello. Say that I have an image, and on it a reference image at an unknown location. How would I go about finding the location of the reference image with C++, Win32 API? I have googled this, but I didn't come up with many useful searches. I even posted this question on the MSDN forums, but I was unlucky there as well.

    google openCV and "Object Detection"
    OpenCV is a great free library for image processing and it comes with source code.

    the best solution depends on how complex the object shape is, how good is the image quality and how fast it needs to be - but there are lots of tutorials for the different methods.
