Hello everyone !

I know there's already a post about this subject : but there's no answer.

OpenCV3 is included with ROS Kinetic. Is there a way to install opencv extra-modules while opencv is already installed ?

Thank you for your help !

Hey Matt,

the OpenCV package that is installed with ROS already include the extra-modules with exception of the neural networks I guess. Have a look at the opencv3 ros package. The question how to compile and install only the extra-modules is a question I also interested in. But until now I get now answer for it, too.

Hello everyone I am trying to use the tracker module of opencv. It is inside the opencv_contrib Sources say that it is already inside the ros-kinetic package. But this does not work. While trying to add it in I had just problems. Any recommendations how I can use the tracker modules of opencv in ros-kinetic?

Import cv2 #tracker = cv2.MultiTracker("MIL") tracker2 = cv2.Tracker_create('MIL')

error: tracker2 = cv2.Tracker_create('MIL') AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Tracker_create

thanks stritchi

I'm having the same problem but in c++. The Tracker base class is in declared in this file but I am unable to include it like this #include <opencv2 tracking="" tracker.hpp="">.
