A portable advanced visual recognition solution can help you overcome many situations where a picture is worth billions of calculations.
Open Source for Computer Vision, OpenCV, is the mother lode for image processing experiments. For hobbyists, it affords an accelerated entry computer graphics algorithms without the burden of going solo or maverick. it is therefore only natural that literature abounds with the installation and porting of the OpenCV suite on SoC boards. The Raspberry Pi is no exception. Robert Castle’s seminal work has been emulated and verified by thousands of users. Yours truly used the documentation as reference guide for the deployment on over a dozen RPi boards. This article describes one such deployment on the Raspberry Pi Zero W board.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
