Not familiar with Kinect.

No vision applications at this moment.

N/A algorithms. looking for ideas.

 

Thanks Jeff 

Thanks Ann

interested in embedded systems vision for robotics

Im not familar with connect

I Received my Tee shirt from the 1st semester today wahoo

What kinds of algorithms are you looking for for your applications?

I'm looking for facial recognition algorithms and other motion and distance detection algorithms.

Iron

Currently I am thinking of working on Security applications with vision.

Iron

I am very familiar with the Kinect and have used it.

Iron

I'm one of the few people on the planet who has never used Kinect.

Iron

Thanks Jeff; Very informative lecture

Iron

Tried to download the SDK from this page:

http://www.embedded-vision.com/platinum-members/bdti/embedded-vision-training/downloads/pages/OpenCVVMwareImage

The link to the SDK /VM does not work. The Demo does download.

 

Please re-try the download now.  There was a web hosting service outage earlier that now appears to be resolved.

OK everyone, I'm going to sign off for now.  Please join us tomorrow for Eric's presentation on 2D and 3D sensors.

 

Also, if you were unable to access the audio, please read the chat comments below regarding audio for hints on possible work-arounds.

 

See you tomorrow!

@JEFF: I found a light at the end of the tunnel for the question on Shannon/Nyquist interval. In a compression environment it is possible to reconstruct analog image from digital from sub-Nyquist/Shannon samples. In addition, Shannon/Nyquist interfal is a sufficient condition, but not necessary in discrete signal processing. That is cool news.

Iron

@JEFF: Could you suggest an innexpensive way to detecting 3D position in a limited space?

 
It really depends on what you mean by "inexpensive" and "detection 3D position".  E.g., how precisely do you need to measure the position?  What's the size of the object(s) you want to detect?  Are they moving?  If so, how fast?  What's the lighting?  Outdoors?  Lots of variables here, and they all factor into the trade-offs among different sensor technologies and algorithmic approaches  Tune in tomorrow for an intro to 2D and 3D sensors.

Jeff:

You're not in the forefront unless most questions get answewred with "Gee I dunno..." lol

People tend to foregt that small point!

Iron

Got the software -- will work with my cameras. Hope to see what I can do with an Autonomous Vehicle app. -- which ios where my embedded work is really going.

Iron

 WILL be hoping to hear if you're familiar with the Leap sensor; 0.01mm repeatable position precision, between 32 and 200 frames per second, uses between 2% and 5% of a generic PC's CPU time running the algorithms that actually extract position data from the sensor's data stream...


The Leap sensor is very intriguing.  So far, however, Leap Motion has not published details of how it works, so we won't be covering it this week.  We're looking forward to hearing more about it ourselves.

 

Blogger

what do you sugest for develop a simple face detection software?

 
Face detection is a well-studied problem, and there is a lot of info published on solutions.  There's a working example (with source code) available in the free OpenCV demo package downloadable here:  http://www.embedded-vision.com/platinum-members/bdti/embedded-vision-training/downloads/pages/introduction-computer-vision-using-op

Range limitation is the  chief drawback (at the moment); their initial product is designed as a desktop-worksurface solution, only monitors an eight cubic foot volume (which STILL manages to yield around 3.25 giga-bits of position data, if you do a ten-micrometer grid across the back surface of an approximately two foot radius field-of-view)... But that will be tomorrow's discussion, re "Fundamentals of Image Sensors", right?

Platinum

Excelent start.! . In the next sessions, will you talk about how to select the lighting system in your vision application?

 
Good question. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we're not going to cover lighting in this series.  I suggest you post your lighting questions on the discussion forum on www.Embedded-Vision.com, and we'll do our best to get some constructive responses.
Blogger

Any new requirement for image sampling besides the Shannon interval in 3D space, considering the advances in compression techniques?

 
Excellent question -- unfortunately outside of my expertise.  Anyone else have insight on this?
Blogger

I'll be hoping for recommendations re "tool-box" applications that I can open up and apply to images stored on my PC -- stuff like edge-detect and segmentation, things that let me try out approaches without having to waste huge amounts of coding time only to find "well THAT doesn't do what I expected/needed"...

 
There are lost of options.  We'll be talking about one free option, OpenCV, on Thursday and Friday. You may also want to check out the MATLAB vision toolbox, and National Instruments LabView Vision.

Platinum

How do FPS rates equate to hardware processing power required?

 
The amount of data coming from the image sensor is proportional to the frame rate and the resolution.  The higher the frame rate (and/or resolution), the higher the data rate.  The higher the data rate, the more processing power required.
Blogger

how much of the processing time is taken up with artifacts in teh video?  How do you normalize the video stream to possibly get an average?

Platinum

@JEFF: Any new requirement for image sampling besides the Shannon interval in 3D space, considering the advances in compression techniques?

Iron

if there is low light, are there good IR algorithms?  How does that coem into play?

Platinum

One technique for low light is TDI (time delay and integration).  See Wikipedia for info.

Iron

I've used Cognex vision systems for very precise applications. I was struck by how functional their "drag and drop formulas into a spread-sheet" application generator was...

Platinum

@Zwilrich For those of you that had audio problems, downgrade your Flash Player b/c the latest version (11.4.402.265) does NOT work.

Iron

How does distance data mess with 2d data when processing objects and determining location in a physical space?

Platinum

@Jeff Just starting with OpenCV.   Any suggestions for enhancing low light situations?  Any good technical articles.  

Low light is a real challenge -- if the sensor can't see the scene well, it's tough to intepret what's going on in the scene.  One solution in some applications is to add lighting -- which is becoming much more practical now due to LED lighting options.  Another is to consider a different kind of sensor with better sensitivity, or front-end processing to improve the quality of the capture images.

Iron

Excelent start.! . In the next sessions, will you talk about how to select the lighting system in your vision application?

Great presentation. How far down can vision be scaled? Within range of high-end MCUs?

Excellent question.  Jitendra Malik of U.C. Berkeley, a luminary in vision rseearch told me that people often overestimate the resolution required for vision algorithms.  Some basic funtions, like face detection, can be performed with fairly low resolution.  And if you don't have fast motion, you may be able to get by with a low frame rate, too.  Low resolution X low frame rate = low data rate, and now we're getting into the realm of things that can be done on relatively low-end processors -- even MCUs in some cases.  Check out the CMUcam as an example of this.

Blogger

Thanks for the links.  I never knew these were available!  My world just opened up!

Platinum

@ckapsalis - this is it.

What would be the best low cost tool to start development of embedded vision application?

Great question.  There are many option.  One of the most popular environments for vision algorithm/application development on the PC is OpenCV.   On the Embedded Vision Alliance website, you can download a free OpenCV kit that will get you up and runnnig quickly -- all you need is a PC, a webcam, and the free VMware player.

For Mac folks, I was unable to get Safari or Firefox to work, but the audio is streaming fine via Chrome

DaveWR, I know of a sensor application using IR which is reproducibly precise to within 0.01millimeters (ten microns).

Platinum

Seems to be a problem with browsers or Operating system. Safari on OSX Lion will not playback audio. Running IE9 on Parallels Guest OS works fine. So it does not look like its the flash version per se.

When I was working at a company using industrial-strength lasers to mark barcodes, etc on metal, PC boards, etc, field engineers having to fly out and reFOCUS the stupid lasers was THE most common (and expensive) remediation required. "barrel/pincushion" is NOT trivial, if you look at the optics.
