OpenCV Color Detection and Filtering with Python

OpenCV color detection and filtering is an excellent place to start OpenCV Python development. In this article, I introduce a basic Python program to get started with OpenCV. The program will allow the user to experiment with colour filtering and detection routines. This article marks the beginning of my efforts to create an object detection robot.

Install OpenCV onto Raspberry Pi from Shell Script

This article is a quick guide on how to install OpenCV onto the Raspberry Pi – the easy way. I will introduce a shell script that will install OpenCV and dependencies without user intervention. Furthermore, I will also introduce GNU Screen so that the OpenCV installation can be done remotely in a Virtual Terminal Session. Continue reading “Install OpenCV onto Raspberry Pi from Shell Script”
