Many computer vision topics, particularly facial recognition, are restricted to experimenting on webcams or other wired image capturing devices. With the introduction of mobile devices that are packaged with straightforward development environments, programmers now have the capability to apply vision algorithms wirelessly. A mobile face recognition application was constructed which employed OpenCV libraries and the Apple iPhone SDK. Various memory management techniques were utilized, coupled with a RESTful client-server framework to address restrictions imposed on processing power and memory.
