Toys come to life


What are you going to build? What does it do? Why are you excited to build it?

I am going to build a camera to track what your toys do when you are not in the room. Using OpenCV I will be able to track the movement of anything within a frame of video. I am excited to continue working on furthuring my OpenCV knowledge and getting to track toys.


What steps are you going to take to build it? What tools are you going to use? What will you do first, second, third, etc.?

First I will set the camer up in a location where it will expirience relative little shaking. After that I will via the raspberry pi start processing the data specifically looking at the movement of the recognized toys in the frame. I will them output a picture where the path of the toy is drawn. TO go more minute I will utilize a nural network to recognize toys first. Then ultilizing open CV through a set period of time that could be idefinitely extended i will track the movement of the toys. At first the program will probabaly be limited to one or two toys but throughout development I hope to get that up.
