This page refers to version 3 of SwisTrack. Unless you are still using this old version, you may want to read the documentation of the most recent version of SwisTrack.

Installing Swistrack[edit]

SwisTrack is shipped as a Windows installer, which walks you through the installation process. Download the installer from SourceForge. For other platforms, SwisTrack has to be built from the sources.

Installing Swistrack Sources (developers only)[edit]

Download the SwisTrack sources with an SVN client of your choice, under Linux the SVN instruction will be


svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/swistrack swistrack


under Windows you only need to enter the address https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/swistrack.

You will also need the following libraries:

  • All Platforms: OpenCV 1.0, WxWidgets 2.6.3
  • Windows: CMU 1394 camera driver
  • Linux: FFMPEG (needs to be installed prior to OpenCV, and OpenCV needs to be build with FFMPEG support enabled)

We use the following tools for developing SwisTrack:

  • All Platforms: Doxygen
  • Windows: Visual Studio 2005, NullSoft Installer
