Character recognition in opencv using motion sensors

asked 2014-06-27 05:23:56 -0500


Im thinking to do character recognition using accelerometer and gyrometer. i have already taken the data of these sensors using msp430 . Now im thinking to program for character recognition using this data in opencv. Is this possible? Please suggest me..

Thanks in advance

just out of curiosity , how do you think, character recognition and gyrometers are related ?

(and no, you probably can't compile opencv on that board. you need 32bit, and either floats or a gpu)

OpenCV is a computer vision based library. If you are interested in machine Learning, you should consider using a dedicated library for that. There is a lot, depending on your languages (libsvm, mlpy, etc.), and some of them are integrated into OpenCV, but I don't see the point to used OpenCV. Maybe I miss something?

At least, you could try to transpose your motion into an image (like if you have used pen) and then compute the recognition with OpenCV, but I don't think it would be the best solution...

Like Mathieu I think applying OpenCV will be a huge overkill. The functionality is not essential enough for optimized embedded routines, not to mention the problems to get them compiled on those systems. I would use dedicated software like suggested.
