I have made AR-application using Unityand OpenCVForUnity at my third-year of bachelor degree. Unfortunately, thatOpenCVForUnity was based on OpenCV version 2.1 or smaller and was the only onefree to use. There was no algorithm for markers detection, so I had to codeit. At the fourth-year, I have implementobject tracking algorithm with C++ and OpenCV using HOG features and colornames features. Additionally, I havebeen working as programmer with Qt for 1 year.

For example,ORB keypoints detector( and brute-forcematching. Besides, I think Boost.GIL numeric algorithms can have some improvements (add 2D convolution, add convolve_option_extend_reflect as convolve_boundary_options). If Boost.GIL users need some other algorithms to be implemented,please contact me.

I suggest you to read through the Boost GSoC overview,
especially the "What students should do now" section
and pages linked from there

Next, add overview of your proposal to Boost.GIL section here

As further preparation, check GIL's README;
and become familar with GIL's development guidelines

If you have any specific question related to any of those resources,
please, do not hesitate to ask!

Good luck!
