I found Python today!

I have been coding in C and C++ for all my projects related to OpenCV till now. But when it comes Machine Vision project in team UAS-DTU (code name: Shaurya) we need to consider every possible parameter. Even if it means shifting to our code to Python if it can make it more efficient. So Machine Vision team has started to take Python into consideration. Python is a general-purpose, interpreted high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Opencv’s Python language is an implementation using SWIG. SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. OpenCV in python seems to make algorithm implementation faster. But i don’t think it will affect the overall processing time since, everything is ultimately processed in c/c++ as Python is just like a wrapper. But still it is fair to Python a chance since even if nothing it could possibly reduce coding/implementation time. It may improve efficiency. Obviously I googled to find if OpenCV’s Python implementation is good enough to port our code to it. But I could not find any major advantage. So now I decide to have hands over it myself.
