Vendors for Computer Vision Algorithms and Systems

Vendors, as opposed to researchers, usually want to sell a result rather than enable you to get the result for free. For some tasks, code may be available (see the Source Code Listing) that allow you to skip the vendor and do it yourself. If you are looking for a research system by name (e.g. AMBLER) try the Computer Vision Systems Listing.

For most really interesting tasks, neither an existing product nor free code exists to solve your problem -- that is the point of research and development (either in a University or by some future Vendor). But over time, what is available changes with new products and code. Those problems are covered more completely by papers referenced in the Computer Vision Bibliography. Current research and applications are highlighted in various Computer Vision and Image Processing conferences. The application oriented workshops often have sessions devoted to vendors and larger meetings may have vendor demonstration sessions.

For some products, the list of vendors overlaps research groups, sometimes they do not, but I usually list them as vendors if there is a product involved. These companies supply the results of research, not necessarily the equipment you need to perform research (i.e. I do not provide an extensive list for cameras and computers, though there are some camera vendors listed).

Computer Vision resources include:
