Track the motion of camera on a surface

asked 2019-01-17 04:55:49 -0500

I want to precisely track the motion of pen with a small camera mounted on its tip. Can I program it on opencv to work precisely on every angle? What advices can you give me?

another dreaded "i want" question ..

and sorry to say so, but we can only help you IF you do your homework (RESEARCH) and try things on your own first. as long as you don't, and try to solve it by "asking around" -- it's only hot air !

It's not a solving by "asking around", but asking experienced people about possibilities of opencv. As you can notice, I said "tracking precisely" - I wanted to know about the possibilities and precision of opencv in this kind of application. Because no one has time to learn something (opencv in this case) for many months only to find out that this particular method doesn't suit his needs. Anyway, thanks.

P.S. I'm already researching for quite a while

Precision is pixel and when model is known you can get subpixel precision. That's not opencv it's only metrology

why can't we see any of it in your question, then ?
