Arduino is an open-source electronic prototyping platform which is based on very easy and intuitive to use hard- and software. Originally the Arduino platform started as a student-project in Italy and after the wiring and design was finished the whole Arduino platform was made available to the open source community. Most Arduino platforms are based on a more or less powerful Atmel AVR microcontroller which can be programmed by the Arduino programming language.

openCV is an open source computer vision library mainly aimed at realtime image processing. openCV was originally an Intel initiative to advance CPU-intensive applications, like realtime ray tracing and facial/gesture recognition. Since then the openCV library was continually improved and expanded, to cover a broad field of image-processing and computer vision.

Arch Linux is an independent and lightweight Linux distribution we are using as our main Operating System on our Core System. Arch Linux comes as a minimal base system,
which can be configured by the user to exactly fulfill the needed requirements. It was founded by Judd Vinet, a Canadian programmer, in the year 2002.
