This week, I am going to try and work more with open source computer vision part 2!
Interests: Fabrication, Making
Location: MIT Media Lab
Date: April 2015
Over here I ran the code for the face detection software and to my pleasant surprise it worked! It could even detect the face on my student ID card!
Initially, I faced some problems with trying to download the frameworks and the source code, but after much tinkering around and looking online, I was able to
resolve the problems needed to be overcome.
It was interesting as the face detection software was pretty robust, and was able to detect most things that resembled a face. It also did not have problems detecting mutiple faces.
I tried the software on more than 5 to 6 friends, and it was able to detect all of our faces.
I am trying to use Affine transformation to rotate and to change the angle of which the image was tilted at. Running the code, I was able to rotate and control the angle and tilt of the image as much as I wanted to.
This was an interesting project and I would need to try and work more on this to understand about how 3D scanning works properly and use that to work on my 3D milk scanner project.
At this segment, I am trying to detect the angles for the picture. As you can see from the comparison of the two pictures, I am able to adjust and choose the extent of the edges of the pictures that I would like to detect.
If I want to detect more, I can increase the extent to it, and it is further enhanced.
This is an interesting program to detect circles in a picture. I tried with several different pictures with round shapes including bowls, basketballs, etc, but they didn't work so well. In the end, the only pictures
that worked were just outright circles with a plain backgrounds. They are the only ones that worked!
