"Setting up an Android development environment can be a complex and frustrating experience. NVIDIA simplifies this for all Android developers with a single installer that manages this complexity for you.


The Tegra Android Development Pack installs all software tools required to develop for Android on NVIDIA’s Tegra platform and is the perfect companion for developing native applications for Tegra developer kits."




Development Tools Included:

  • Tegra Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) for Ventana
  • Tegra Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) for Ventana
  • NVIDIA Debug Manager for Eclipse 10.0.1
  • PerfHUD ES 1.4
  • OProfile 0.9.6 for Tegra
  • Tegra SDK Samples 
  • Android SDK r11
  • Android NDK r5c
  • JDK 6u24
  • Cygwin 1.7
  • Eclipse 3.6.2
  • CDT 7.0.2
  • ADT 10.0.1
  • Apache Ant 1.8.2



I went through the code in OpenCV 2.3.0 and 2.3.1.  It appears that NVIDIA has created seperate function to accelerate Lucus Kinade optical flow, various thresholding functions, and arithmatic primitives ( or, xor, ... ).

The willow garage release of OpenCV only has the hooks for the expanded Tegra functions.  You must download the Tegra Android Development pack -
