Today’s story is about improving performance of OpenCV library on the ARM-based platforms.
As you already know (from here or from here or may be even from here), face detection algorithm implemented by OpenCV library doesn’t work perfectly on ARM processors. Science doesn’t know for certain why this happens. There might be several possible reasons. One of our assumption was missing of hardware support for floating point operations. So we tried to translate Viola-Jones algorithm from floating point to fixed point. And that’s how we did this…
