What it does
It's supposed to take images using an android phone's camera, use google cloud vision to do localized object detection, and then send commands to an Arduino to dim or brighten a lighting strip based on what has been detected and where.
How I built it
Using the Android SDK in Android Studio
Challenges I ran into
Time. I really didn't have enough time to finish it. Getting even just basic camera functionality working in the android application ended up taking a long time.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Creating something (or at least the beginnings of something) at a hackathon.
What I learned
I learned how to use the Google Cloud Vision API which was very useful. I'll definitely be taking advantage of this in the future.
What's next for smart_lighting_application
Work out bugs, and get Arduino communication working so the lights can actually be controlled.
