Computer Vision Toolbox™ provides algorithms, functions, and apps for designing and testing computer vision, 3D vision, and video processing systems. You can perform object detection and tracking, as well as feature detection, extraction, and matching. You can automate calibration workflows for single, stereo, and fisheye cameras. For 3D vision, the toolbox supports visual and point cloud SLAM, stereo vision, structure from motion, and point cloud processing. Computer vision apps automate ground truth labeling and camera calibration workflows.
You can train custom object detectors using deep learning and machine learning algorithms such as YOLO, SSD, and ACF. For semantic and instance segmentation, you can use deep learning algorithms such as U-Net and Mask R-CNN. The toolbox provides object detection and segmentation algorithms for analyzing images that are too large to fit into memory. Pretrained models let you detect faces, pedestrians, and other common objects.
You can accelerate your algorithms by running them on multicore processors and GPUs. Toolbox algorithms support C/C++ code generation for integrating with existing code, desktop prototyping, and embedded vision system deployment.
Image and Video Ground Truth Labeling
Automate labeling for object detection, semantic segmentation, instance segmentation, and scene classification using the Video Labeler and Image Labeler apps.
Deep Learning and Machine Learning
Train or use pretrained deep learning and machine learning based object detection and segmentation networks. Evaluate the performance of these networks and deploy them using C/C++ or CUDA® code.
Automated Visual Inspection
Use the Automated Visual Inspection Library in Computer Vision Toolbox to identify anomalies or defects to assist and improve quality assurance processes in manufacturing.
Estimate the intrinsic, extrinsic, and lens-distortion parameters of monocular and stereo cameras using the camera calibration and stereo camera calibration apps.
Visual SLAM and 3D Vision
Extract the 3D structure of a scene from multiple 2D views. Estimate camera position and orientation with respect to its surroundings. Refine pose estimates using bundle adjustment and pose graph optimization.
Lidar and 3D Point Cloud Processing
Segment, cluster, downsample, denoise, register, and fit geometrical shapes with lidar or 3D point cloud data. Lidar Toolbox™ provides additional functionality to design, analyze, and test lidar processing systems.
Feature Detection, Extraction, and Matching
Detect, extract, and match features such as blobs, edges, and corners, across multiple images. Features matched across images can be used for registration, object classification, or in complex workflows such as SLAM.
Object Tracking and Motion Estimation
Estimate motion and track objects in video and image sequences.
Code Generation and Third Party Support
Use the toolbox for rapid prototyping, deploying, and verifying computer vision algorithms. Integrate OpenCV-based projects and functions into MATLAB® and Simulink®.
“From data annotation to choosing, training, testing, and fine-tuning our deep learning model, MATLAB had all the tools we needed—and GPU Coder enabled us to rapidly deploy to our NVIDIA GPUs even though we had limited GPU experience.”Valerio Imbriolo, Drass Group
