Computer Vision and AR libraries availabe for Android?


Question

I am starting out as an Android Developer, and I would like to know if there are any Computer vision libraries or Augmented Reality libraries for the Android SDK, as I am planning to use these libraries for a mobile app.

I have read that if I download the NDK, I might be able to "import/use" the C openCV, and ARtoolkit libraries, but I am wondering if this is possible, or if there is a better and easier way of using these tools.

Android apps are programmed in Java, yet OpenCV & ARtoolkit use C/C++. Is there any way to use these libraries?

There are a number of wrappers for OpenCV available. For Java you might check JavaCV out.

To my knowledge, there is GSoC activity on AR with OpenCV on Android, but they seem to use C++.
