Heaat

Heaat is an image processing application that uses an RGB LED matrix to adjust a camera's white balance.

How Does It Work?

Heaat uses the Open Source Computer Vision Library (OpenCV) to calculate the color temperature of a video feed. The program then uses this color temperature value to determine the color that needs to be displayed on the LED matrix to white balance the image. Our program intends to bring the color temperature of the video feed to roughly 5500 Kelvin, which is true white.
