Directions on a new project needed

asked 2019-11-26 08:21:06 -0500

Dear all,

I am new to Open CV and I would kindly like your directions on a project I need to start.

I need to localize a moving robot on a plane (which is the ground) through a single camera. So, I will have an origin (O) on the plane(=ground) from which I will measure (X,Y) coordinates of the location of my moving robot. All the above will be monitored and registered by a single camera located at a certain height above the ground. The camera will, of course, be tilted by a certain amount (deg) to have a view on the area that the robot will be moving and will provide all the required information regarding the (X, Y) location of the robot with respect to the origin (O).

Any initial directions on how to start would be most appreciated.

Best Regards!

I need to develop a cure for cancer - any hints or help on that is highly welcome (by the new i am new to medicine). Sorry for being a bit sarcastic.

You most likely want to start with the detection part - use a cnn (check the dnn module of opencv). But you really have a biiiiig task.

You need object detection and then tracking, but your problem may be solved by GPS, why Opencv?
