This time I am doing my final project about motorcycle parking lot space monitor using openCV. My lecturer asked me that if he wants to use my system to handle motorcycle parking area with one thousand motorcycles there, how many computers will be used to process the image ? In my project, I use one camera to cover three motorcycles. So, how many cameras that can be handled by openCV ? A camera represents one frame.

Hi. I normally use opencv with 8 cameras for each machine. Each camera in a thread. The problem isn't related to opencv but related to the hardware (If for example you are using a video card with one channel but more inputs. In this case you have to patch opencv and switch from a input to the other continuously)
