Myron Machado January 29.
Computer Vision for Interactive Robot Head. Overview and research of Myron.
COMPUTER VISION FOR INTERACTIVE ROBOT HEAD
The progress of our project ``Computer Vision for Interactive Robot Head''
has taken us in the direction of selection of Open
CV library from Intel and Capture PRO library from Pegasus
and the extraction of relevant information for implementation in my project code.
The Camera Interface/Capture program kit that I developed provides us with functionalities like:
* Provides interfaces with any video capture device that supports USB, FireWire, WDM
* Performs image acquisition from inexpensive capture devices
* Real-time automatic image acquisition
* Generates easy to recognize file formats like .jpg
* Allows selection of available camera resolutions and color formats such as RGB
* Facility for selection within a vast range of filter effects
* Manual control of time interval between frame capture
* Autosave feature allows automatic frame capture with user decided time interval
* Allows optional automatic overwrite of previous frame with current frame
All of these features provided
will play a vital role in the future development of the Image processing part of our project.
