Hello guys ! I am working on a ROS and opencv ! I want to find the object of specific color value and if the object is not present in the range of camera then it should print 'object not found' but once the object comes in the frame of the camera, it should print 'object found' How can I implement this ?

The following is the so far code that I have written !


# define range of blue color in HSV
            lower_blue = np.array([60,0,0],dtype=np.uint8)
            upper_blue = np.array([255,255,255],dtype=np.uint8)
        # Threshold the HSV image to get only blue colors
            mask = cv2.inRange(hsv, lower_blue, upper_blue)
        new_mask = mask.copy()
        # Bitwise-AND mask and original image
            res = cv2.bitwise_and(cv_image,cv_image, mask= mask)
        #removing noise 
        kernel = np.ones((12,12),np.uint8)
        new_mask = cv2.morphologyEx(new_mask, cv2.MORPH_CLOSE, kernel)
        new_mask = cv2.morphologyEx(new_mask, cv2.MORPH_OPEN, kernel)
        cv2.imshow("Image window", cv_image)

Thanks !
