Trash level in waste bin

Hello everyone,

I am trying to find a way to understand trash level inside of a trash bin. I am using OpenMV Cam H7(which can be mounted on different places in a trash bin like lid or sides) for the project and thinking about using background subtraction method. However, I am not sure if it could work or not, because I always see background subtraction is used with moving objects in images. Does anyone have any suggestions or any keywords for this specific application for search?

Thank you so much

  1. The OpenMV Cam uses MicroPython, so you can't use OpenCV. Refer to their API or their forums for solutions. I'm pretty sure it doesn't have BackgroundSubtractor
  2. To get the trash level, I would go for a simpler method, like an ultrasonic distance sensor.

Thank you for your answer. I asked into this forum because I wanted to have some image processing ideas, rather than information about OpenCV or OpenMV Cams. Well, I am still working on the topic, and it looks like OpenMV Cam has background subtractor support and frame differencing examples.
