That it basically has it's own version of GRIP built in that you can edit with the GUI editor that they provide?
Let me see if I can give you the Readers Digest explanation. I am not, nor ever have been, a GRIP user, so if I misspeak, I hope others will correct me.
GRIP is a graphical tool to create a vision processing workflow without the need to actually write the code.
Grip uses OpenCV to do the actual vision processing, but this is transparent to the user.
GRIP can generate the code so it can be exported and used elsewhere, and this is how it can be used with JeVois.
JeVois supports OpenCV, but not GRIP. So, you use GRIP to generate the OpenCV code then copy that into JeVois.
Anand has written an excellent guide on this process, it is linked below.
