OpenCV: (Open Source Computer Vision libraries)
I installed OpenCV 3 onto a new SD card (Sandisk 16GB - B) which took a long time, nearly 4 hours on my slow internet connection. I went down the hardcore method by building the libraries myself and installing the dependencies but this means I am sure I have got the whole lot. Some of the installation packages don't include everything.
Presently I use Motion on both of my RPi webcams and the one which detects motion sends me an email every time motion is detected on the footpath outside the house. I have tried (unsuccessfully) to restrict the detection area with a "mask_file" but I still get a lot of emails! I want to be able to distinguish the people that are detected so I can ignore those of myself and my wife so I am hoping that OpenCV will allow me to do this. It is all new to me but I understand it is the route to go.
This is work in progress...
