I will outsource the wrapping and porting as much as possible, but we will likely be involved in some stitching of things together. Once we have done the wrapping, we can hand off the work to other people. I'm sure that the Mono people would love to have a wrapper for PLIB. We can approach both PLIB and Mono to find people with time.

Found a .Net wrapper! http://code.google.com/p/opencvdotnet/

Intel's code written in C++ in 1999-2000. Not too much going on with it, but it was used by Stanford in the Darpa Grand Challenge. It has code that should be thrown away, but it is comprehensive. I think we should start with it, especially that there is a .Net wrapper


AForge AI Library written in C# Image processing, neural networks, machine learning, and vision. There is a decent amount of traffic on the forums, and the releases have thousands of downloads. The guy is from Latvia and has linked-in profile says he is looking for consulting work: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/4/410/A72

PLIB, Portable game library: http://plib.sourceforge.net/whats_inside.html Features: sound effects, music, a complete 3D engine, font rendering, a simple Windowing library, a game scripting language, a GUI, networking, 3D math library and a collection of handy utility functions. Each library component is fairly independent of the others - so if you want to use SDL, GTK, GLUT, or FLTK instead of PLIB's 'PW' windowing library, you can.

This engine is okay, but not great looking. Eventually we will want something that looks more professional.


Driving and 3-D Game engine: http://torcs.sourceforge.net, uses PLIB. See quality comments above.

3-D Game engines: Do we start with PLIB or one of these? There are many but these look like the top candidates. Please investigate and make inline comments:
