Hi experts, I am trying to create own xml for detecting pens in real time video. For this i followed the link I followed all the steps but after using xml file in python program. Programe is not detection pens. There are approximately hundred of triangles but all the triangles are so small as comparison to pen in real time video. I have zip file which contains all the necessary files. Attaching files for reference.

Can you check and guide to find out what is the issue ?

Thanks Pardeep

Make sure you stick to OpenCV 3.4, because in 4.x it is completely gone :)

Boosted cascades are just one of the many classifiers that can be used for object detection. Convolutional neural networks and all their variants are another type. However, they have beaten boosted cascades by a long stretch if you have enough training data. Have a look here:
