This is a repo for a project at Wildhacks 2015, 11/21 - 11/22/2015, at Northwestern University.
The team members are Shayne Hemminger (Louisville), Jon Tan (Waterloo), Jack Wu (Northwestern), and Aditya Dhingra (Purdue).
We are building a remote, cloud-streaming mobile app with multiple cameras integrated, which prints pictures from the Walgreens API and delivers with PostMate.
The user can swipe across to view the streams of different cameras they have set up integrated to the system, and interesting objects in the image are identified as text to the user. At the press of a button, the image is captured, printed from Walgreens, and shipped to PostMate. They are charged through Braintree.
We are using:
Microcontroller: Particle Photon (Arduino-compatible WiFi development board)
Camera: Omnivision 7670 camera that is Arduino-compatible
Cloud server: Microsoft Azure and the Media Server
Mobile development: Android Studio and Swift for iOS
The programming languages we use are:
C, for Arduino/Photon
PHP and JSON
Swift, for iOS
The APIs we are using:
CloudSight API - image recognition
Braintree API - payments
Walgreens - take photo and print it
Postmates - deliver that picture
The prizes we are aiming for include:
Belvedere's hack that facilitates communication - cloud video throughput can communicate hand signals over the internet
Braintree - take payments to take a picture
Walgreens - take a picture from the camera and print it
Postmates - deliver that picture (to us?)
Punniest name - "CamerAzure"
The equipment we have are:
Many Arduinos (UNO, Mega 2560, Nano, Pro Mini - Jackie, Jon)
2 Particle Photons (Jackie)
Wires and wire cutter (Jackie)
Other electrical equipment, like breadboards, wires, resistors (Jackie, Jon)
Cameras like OV7670 with FIFO, without FIFO, and others (Jackie)
