Re: Human distance detection for Art Piece

I'm a bit scared of treading into the image processing territory, I was under the impression that this would complicate the code - what is your opinion? Hello, A long time ago I messed about with the OpenCV image-processing library in Python. The code required to detect & count the no. of people in...

Re: Create a MMORPG running on a raspi

Fantastic stuff, I'm impressed at how much you've achieved. I'll download the client and give it a go later on. I'm intrigued by the name, can you give us an overview of the world/story you've imagined? (P.S. I volunteer, although I'm not sure if I'll be of any use, I'd just like the chance to tinke...

Sounds awesome, start the thread!

The closest I've come to C is some basic stuff on an Arduino but I can always learn more. I'd love to have some small part in the project.

Re: R-Pi MMORPG Community Project (UNDERWAY/NEEDS MORE HELP)

Perhaps if we were to aim lower. A super simple game, maybe a text-based, turn-based rpg battle. No world to build or story to write, just a menu and the multiplayer basics. If that's achievable then you can think of adding more.

Re: Pi as local network (no internet) router

Thank you for your responses. I Shall set something up to test at home next.

Initially there will be 3 laptops connected to 3 Pi plus the one acting as the router. I figure that should be manageable (based on absolutely nothing :D ), right?

I got some human detection to work pretty well on the B+ using SimpleCV. It used Haar cascades to detect upper bodies and display a captured image with each human marked by a green square. There's no reason you couldn't do exactly the same but run face recognition (or anything else) in place of the ...

Re: Trying to Get Raspberry Pi to Recognize Automobiles

Interesting idea, I've never thought of that before. I suppose that probably simplifies certain elements becasuse the cars will always be face-on & in the same place (relative to the car & camera) when they're worth noticing. You'll probably need to angle the camera carefully to minimise background ...

Re: Trying to Get Raspberry Pi to Recognize Automobiles

I did a bit of experimenting with SimpleCV's blob detection a little while ago. You can quite easily find the co-ordinates of the centre of each detected blob and as cars tend to be a solid colour they should give you good blobs. The problem is you don't know what colours are one whole car and what...

Re: Trying to Get Raspberry Pi to Recognize Automobiles

As Reasonable said, OpenCV (or SimpleCV) is one option, but the speed at which it can do any image processing is limited by the Pi. However, if you just wanted to see how many stationary cars were in a fixed area (like a car park/parking lot) then that shouldn't be a problem. I did a bit of experime...

Right. In that case you may want to break things down a bit. Make a small python program that takes an image without trying to do anything fancy with the filename. Once that's working on it's own, add in the bit that gets the temperature from your first script & print it to screen along with the tim...
