We wanted to learn how to use Opencv to process data from a live video feed.
What it does
Opens the users video feed and scans the feed for basic shapes.
How we built it
Using C++ and Opencv
Challenges we ran into
The Canny function posed some issues with framerate which was easily solved by lowering the max value
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were proud of overlaying a colored outline over discovered shapes on top of the live video feed (rather than opening a secondary window to display them) while maintaining a smooth framerate.
What we learned
How to use opencv to process images (specifically live video feed)
What's next for Live Video Shape Detector
Possibly add more shapes. We have also been considering another project using the things we learned in this project with opencv.
