Face Tracking – OpenCV + Arduino

  A face tracking project based on a face recognition system (based on OpenCV) and a tracking system based on Arduino and servos. OpenCV captures video from a webcam and uses a ready-made OpenCV algorithm for face detection. If a face is detected, the system starts tracking it (the (X, Y) coordinates of its center […]

Capturing an object and calculating the distance to it based on a stereo vision system

Found a VERY interesting project on using OpenCV and a stereo vision system (2nd webcams) to recognize and capture objects and calculate the distance to an object based on a depth map. The author of the project used OpenCV + cvBlobsLib + 2 webcams. The result of the work is impressive: a pair of webcams […]

Qbo’s implementation of SLAM

The Qbo social robot project is very interesting. At least what is an example of the use of open source software (OS Linux and the operating system for robots – ROS). And also – a clear example of the use and implementation of various methods of robotics. More recently, we have considered such a thing […]

Loki – homemade robot

Loki – a homemade robot from Dave Shinsel (team leader of programmers at Intel), made as a hobby. Mechanics The robot has already undergone several transformations and at the moment it looks like this: The Loki on-board computer is an ordinary laptop: – access to laptop keyboard Access to the engine room: Internals: “and inside […]

BMW presented its version of the robot car and the implementation of tracking lane dividing lines on OpenCV

It seems that among various corporations, the topic of robotic cars that can independently navigate the situation on the road (avoid obstacles: pedestrians, other cars, etc.) is more than popular. The most famous example of such a development is a robot car from Google. Now BMW has prepared its own version of the robot car. […]

Kinect – Getting Started – Setting Up OpenCV

Just before the New Year, I finally got the Kinect sensor 🙂 Here he is, handsome: along with the sensor, there was already a power supply and an adapter cable to a regular USB (Kinect Modification Kit): I’m not sure if this is a standard equipment, because before people had to assemble such an adapter […]

Connecting the Camera Module to Raspberry Pi

How to connect the camera module to Raspberry Pi can be seen in this video: – a cable from the camera, carefully inserted into the connector located behind the Ethernet connector. For this you need: 0. Turn off your Raspberry Pi. 1. gently lift (by 1-2mm) the plastic latch on the connector. 2. Gently insert […]

Object detection – search for an object by template (Template matching)

Table of contents 1. OpenCV step by step. Introduction. 2. Installation. 3. Hello world. 4. Loading a picture. Object detection – search for an object by template (Template matching) Pattern detection can be useful in many cases. The simplest example is the search for a predefined object. OpenCV has a great function for this. cvMatchTemplate() […]
