914 Head Project Part 1
Tuesday, 18 September 2007

C6Jones720 has written a short report on his work to easily achieve stereo vision for the 914.

Typically stereo vision is quite tricky because two web cams have to be used together at the same time. Chris has utilized a CCTV 'quad processor' to combine up to four video feeds - one into each quarter/corner of the video stream, so that the resulting video image can be processed in one go and all the cameras are frame-locked together.

Chris has also started to dabble with Microsoft Robotics Studio 1.5 which includes some sample vision applications for face and hand gesture detection that work with normal web cams. It's worth downloading Microsoft Robotics Studio and running these demos - I found they worked straight away with my web cam after installing and typing the command lines Chris has detailed into the Microsoft Robotics Studio command shell.
