Hello Martin,

Thanks for the information!

I have been waiting for the new raspberry pi CSI based camera which should utilize the GPU for image capturing instead of the CPU. Do you believe if this would be a method to better increase the frame rate?

Is there anyway I could utilize some OpenGL processing to off load some of the processing to the GPU? I know there is some Cuda based processing I have seen reference to but the RaspberryPI does not have any Nvidia hardware on it.

Hello All,

I am new to the OpenCV world and have been playing around with face tracking and other image manipulation. The project I am currently working on is an augmented reality/wearable targeting system.

I am trying to run this on my Raspberry Pi but have encountered some problems with frame rate and the CPU is running through the roof, I have written my program in Python.

I was wondering if there is a way to change the compression format of what I am getting from my webcam to get better performance.

As I am pretty new at this any information anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
