I'm starting to use Intel Galileo gen 1 and I'm trying to develop a computer vision project. My idea is to connect a webcam and use its pictures to recognize some colored patterns (or something else, I haven't decide it yet).
I'm currently running a Debian Image, but I'm also open to suggestions about other linux images.
So, my first doubts are:
Do I really need OpenCV in this project?
How do I install it? Or how can I do a cross-compilation and then install it?
