Abstract



Smartphones with Android operating system are equipped with sensors usable in robotics. Their usage in this field is starting to be very popular. In our paper we introduce a navigation algorithm with optical flow and a method for estimation of 3D position of significant points all running on an Android smartphone in real-time using OpenCV library.

Keywords


computer vision, optical flow, position estimation, OpenCV, Android.
