Thank you Eric, great presentation.

Iron

Planning on implementing

Great Presentation. Wish I could have heard the actual talk

Iron

I have not written any software for vision systems, always stuck with hardware side.

Iron

I used all sorts of programming languages from assembly to much hiher levels.

Iron

I usually program in C or assembly.

Iron

The lab demo sounds interesting

Yes I have worked alot with computer algorithums

Hello again looking forward to another day

Mechatronics Engineer

Vision Applications : none at the moment

Iron

Thanks Eric; very good lecture

Iron

got to know some good stuff.

Iron

Thank you for the presentation

Iron

Quantity, body size, Features, gender, direction, activity and etc...

Facial recognition is only the surface of what IP camera's can do.

Iron

I'm working on Security applications with Vision.

Iron

I'm an EE in the Security industry.

Iron

thanks again , will be there tomorrow again, it was good experience first time.

Iron

No plans to distribute a script, but I believe that the essential links are all in the slides.   If anything is missing, please send us email:  info@embedded-vision.com.

 

Wow -- what the heck was THAT?? I'm seeing a whole string of earlier posts scroll by...
 
Guess I'm going to have to audio-scrape for awhile. It's THERE...
Platinum

Thank you for this session!  Tomorrow, can we start an hour earlier and run an hour later too?  (i.e. several hours of education?)    :)

That pause in Ann's intro was scary.

 

re: developing a sensor system -- Hoping not to have to completely build my own -- OpenCV looks quite useful; anticipating sharing a "crowd-sourced" development environment...

Platinum

Let's see -- currently unemployed; constantly seeking gainful employment -- strong hopes of landing a developer's kit from Leap Motion any day now... R&D, design engineer, project, proto, product, "soup-to-nuts", full life-cycle, 300+ PCBs generated... Robotics, Vision, innovative technology, anything I get sucked into... And here we go!

Platinum

Going to have to come back and "harvest" responses later.

Thanks, GREAT stuff, Eric.

Catch y'all manana!

Platinum

Oh, Ann, did I hear correctly -- "free T-shirts for 25 people (attendees) per day"?

Platinum

Whoosh. You realize, I'm going to have to buy another computer -- my wife will kill me if I monopolize the "family" machine to the extent I'm about to...

Platinum

Just a thought -- sounds like Eric has a script; will we be able to get a copy, since I'm hearing good stuff I can't ...quite... capture.

Platinum

Yesterday I didn't have time to ask this: could you please tell us about some embedded applications you've worked on? Thanks.

 
Here's one project that Eric was a key contributor to:  http://venturebeat.com/2012/03/29/this-chip-can-count-dice-rolls-faster-than-you-can/

Thanks for tuning in today, everyone!  We'll be back at the same time tomorrow.  And, if you come up with more questions in the meantime, feel free to log in early for tomorrow's class and post your questions before the class starts.

Also, if you're able to come to Boston next week, please check out the Embedded Vision Summit, a free educational event for engineers: http://www.embedded-vision.com/embedded-vision-summit.  And if you have colleagues who may be interested, please spread the word.

Iron

we need to think in a different way sometimes

Iron

VMware Fusion is $50.    I've used VMware Workstation (on Windows) for years.   Have considered going to VirtualBox (open-source, free) but haven't gotten around to it.   Couldn't convert existing VMs from VMware to VirtualBox.

Eric,

Okay, so that's not a freebie for the Mac version. Correct?

Iron

You mentioned testing VMware player on the Mac. I can't find VMware player for anything except Windows and Linux. Can you tell me where to find the VMware player for the Mac?

http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/overview.html

 

Blogger

VMware Fusion runs on Mac - I don't know if there's a free player for the Mac though.

 

Is it really Eclipse specific or can it work with the IDE of our choosing? I use Code::Blocks on both Win and Linux.

 

Nope,  you can use any IDE you choose that supports GDB.

 

Blogger

So if I'm going to be spending a lot of time ramping up on OpenCV, does it make sense to ramp up on Eclipse as well???

 

If you plan on writing software for a living,  you should ramp-up on Eclipse.  It's become the dominet IDE in the industry.  Definitely worth your time.

Ahhhh... clicking on the .vmx file did the trick.  Looks like I'm in.  Looking forward to tomorrow!

Iron

Thanks guys. Tried the demo -- will look at OpenCV libraries.

Iron

c,asm no vision apps yet

Iron

time to go. thanks Jeff, Eric and Ann. see all tomorrow.

Iron

Allergies?.

 

Yup,  terrible in Chicago this time of year.

 

Blogger

When I create a new virtual machine, do I point the installer to the BDTI Dev Tool??? There is no .iso there.

 

You do not need to create a new virtual macing.  After downloading and uncompressing the VMware image.  Simply double click on the .vmx file.

Thanks Eric - Looking forward to tomorrow.

@Eric   Thanks for the great info !

Iron

On slide 18 - can we use the executive demo for Friday or do we have to use the development kit?

 

Executive Demo

Blogger

My earlier question about perhaps getting a transcript of the script Eric was using?? He touched on some valuable stuff I didn't manage to catch.

 

I'm going to cause some excitement when I spread the word about the pre-loaded ubuntu vmware package -- I've got a crowd of people already starting to pull their hair out trying to get a common development environment defined so they can share the development sequence (i.e. bootstrap each other past "what was THAT??" and "did your system fail when you did ...this...??, etc

 

Mind-reading again, with the itseez.com reference. Thanks! (BTW, hope that cough gets better soon, or people will be wearing hospital masks to your presentation next week...)

Platinum

Thanks dingwa.  To be more specific, I'm running Firefox 15.0.1 under XP Pro SP3.  No live audio

Iron

Is there a reference that explains all 2000 of the available [OpenCV] algorithms?

thanks digkey and embedded vision have not programmed yet.

Iron

Can you discuss Object Detection, and algorithms to do that. Like the photo you had that recognized mugs, Naked bottles, etc. Thanks.

Yes,  that software was developed at the Google summer of Code 2011.

Iron

Thanks for the lecture, Eric. Looking forward to the next one...

Iron

Thanks Eric, Jeff and all.

Iron

@flaredOne  - One step ahead of you there on the laptop.  I had to get an I7 laptop just for CV processing.

Iron

Adding a lab and demos we can run is a great idea for these Design News lectures!

Great lecture. Thanks Eric.

@Ann - I notice live audio still doesn't work on Firefox.  Did you think it was fixed, or did you give up on it?  ( I'm using IE8 for the live audio).  Thanks

Iron

Eric's class on Tuesday will not be recorded. The full suite of presentations Wednesday WILL be recorded, for publication within a few weeks after the event, after they're edited. For more on the Embedded Vision Summit agenda, see here:

The free stuff works really great!

Iron

Which version of Umbuntu is the Kit setup for? Can it be done native on the appropriate Umbuntu OS without the VMware player?

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Yes, although native has not been tested.

flared0one,

Sounds like rationalization to buy a new toy. I know it well ;-)

Whoosh. You realize, I'm going to have to buy another computer -- my wife will kill me if I monopolize the "family" machine to the extent I'm about to...

Platinum

JSP, please ask Eric post-presentation in the chat about updated-version availability. I'm thinking it might be as early as next week, but don't quote me on that

So do I correctly understand that BDTi is in a position to maintain a top-down view of all these different development efforts, so that it IS possible to do a reasonably complete survey of design choices without having to search the entire internet?

BDTI evaluates a variety of processors, tools and algorithms on an ongoing basis. Through free resources (like this class series) and consulting services, we help engineers and companies make good choices in selecting processors, tools, and algorithms for use in their products.

I'm a software engineer (currently unemployed, and feeling rather dinosaurish); I've done embedded software, internals (mostly Windows), device drivers, and lots of Palm software.   3 years working on VoIP test/dev tools.   Some Android on my own.

I've never had audio issues before - I get the lady "... radio" - then nothing but buffering   (I'm at home; no filtering/blocking issues)

I am an EE student at Union University.

Doing research for robotics vision on platforms of arduino, arm, or android architecture.

Hi, Ann, Jeff and Eric. Hello all.

Iron

Platinum

If you're having audio issues, please note that some companies block live audio streams. If you don't hear any audio, try refreshing your browser. The show will be archived and available on this page.

Blogger

try browser refresh for audio issues

Iron

no vision projects on the table for me just now.

Platinum

is the audio running I just have buffering

 

Iron

@Eric - Are there any good books/websources you would recommend that is up-to-date for OpenCV 2.3 C+ APIs ?

Iron

hello all, a few minutes late...   (and waiting for audio - endless 'buffering'...)


not sure of question asked, but from context...

I've done lots of embedded C and assembly; no vision code yet.   No current projects right now, but soon...

 

languages: current using c, asm and SX/b (basic for sx28)

no vision projects right now.

learning from the begining by using Arduino, open source libraries and simple frame grabber on breadboard.

Iron

asm & C

no vision apps yet

Iron

use Verilog, some C, some assembly
building a video link
using self-developed video processing

dingwa

Iron

@Ann - at that time did not use any open source or commercial libraries... had to do everything from scratch (it was a school project)

Iron

1. c+ /c

2. yes. robustness 

3. maybe

i use c+ but no vision app.

C, C+ , assembly

No vision so far

Iron

Just a thought -- sounds like Eric has a script; will we be able to get a copy, since I'm hearing good stuff I can't ...quite... capture.

Platinum

Asm, C, C+ , Java, HTML, etc..

limited, frame grabbers mostly, no headaches

Yes

 

 

 

Iron

C/Java/HTML/CSS 

No Vision yet

Iron

1. C/C+ , Python, Assy, VHDL, UML

2. Nothing to report

3. Yes, all.

Iron

I use C, Python, assembly language and Objective C

No immediate vision applications but I'm going to checkout the OpenCV tools

1. C, C#

2. Yes, controlling light conditions.

3. Using free tools as most as possible, but open to license anything that would accelerate development.

Iron

@Ann - yes, did develop cv s/w quite a while ago... at that time the biggest headache was dealing with live data stream in real time

Iron

I use Pascal (Delphi), C, CPP, -- Stellaris/PC /Windows platforms.

Biggest headache is always the startup phase and the initial frustrations due to complete ignorance of a new area.

Iron

C & C#, no prior vision SW work, would prefer open source or commercial algoriths to developing our own.

Iron

C, C+ & C#

No vision apps

Iron

That pause in Ann's intro was scary.

 

re: developing a sensor system -- Hoping not to have to completely build my own -- OpenCV looks quite useful; anticipating sharing a "crowd-sourced" development environment...

Iron

C/C+ /Java/C# Primarily C/Embedded C

Never worked with vision software before

Iron

I did some work using Vision Blox some years ago.

Iron

Use Assembly and C for applicaitons.

Have not done any Vision application.

Would expect to use free software resources.

Iron

Tried downloading the BDTI OpenCV Executable Demo Package and at the end of the download, I got a message saying that the program is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous.

Any ideas why?

Eric (today's presenter) is the person who put this download together.  I've installed it myself with no problem, as have many others.  I suspect that your security software is being overly cautious.
