Hello, i have a project which needs image processing in order to detect spaces in between books in library shelves, and i thought that putting identifiers in the edges of the books would help and by detecting distances in between edges of two books with the help of the identifiers would determine the space. All of this while running a live video stream.

For example, book 1 has identifiers in its edges (color red for left of the spine, color blue for the right of the spine), book 2 would have the same identifiers wherein i would use image detection using these specific colors in order to detect the space in between them.

I would like to know if this method is fast and good enough in determining space or if there is a better way. Thank you.

edge of books maybe isn't enough,you must first explain the pictures you have...

How is this question different from your other question? You need to answer your questions for yourself concerning methods. You must implement, you must prototype, and then come back here with specific questions after you have a better understanding of your problem. Speed should be your final concern, not your first concern. Forget about speed, you will have a very tough time as it is.
