Hello Eren,

I worked on a autonomous car project based on Beaglebone about a month ago. First of all I would like to recommend you not to use python. It consumes too much memory. So if you can, use C,C++. Both Ubuntu and Angstrom images are OK. I did not try android. But be careful that OpenCV libraries’ locations differ in Ubuntu 12.04 armhf image and Angstrom image. (

To install OpenCV, this would be enough I think →

After installing OpenCV, you can cross-compile your programs and start using them on BeagleBone.

Hello Im working on a machine vision project too.

I need to capture images based on a hardware sensor activation.
Do you have any experience in this?

I dont know also how to deploy opencv programs to the beaglebone.

Please any help will be appreciated.
