What CV model should I use to detect my black cat?

Sat Jun 29, 2019 2:40 am

Hello! I've been using pet/animal/object detector models to try and detect my cat on camera. Because my cat is black, the models do not detect him. Should I use a motion detector? A blob detector? I'm working with a Pi Zero W, limited resources. Please let me know. Thank you!

Ad I use to detect my black cat?

ZeroW might work, depending on:
- what/who else is moving in front of the camera.
- which influences what algorithm should be used
- what resolution/framerate/delays are acceptable

Can you invert the image and go for a white blob?
