Opencv generally used for projects like face recognition bot or a bot that tacks certain objects. Control systems with augmented reality can be achieved like this.There can be a lot of future work and applications for this project. Instead of blue object we can use Haar cascade training and track hand movements. Then we can use gesture recognition so as to control home appliances according to specific hand movements Arduino has redefined cheap home automation. However the way of communicating with Arduino means entering commands from computer or via Bluetooth/WiFi . This project explores the possibility of controlling Arduino by using image processing through the open source platform ‘opencv’.
It’s the beginning of a new era of technology where engineering will reach new milestones. Just like in the science fiction movies where display of computer screen appears on walls, commands are given by gestures, the smart digital environment which talks to us to do our work and so on, these all will be possible very soon. You imagine it and sixth sense technology will make it possible. Isn’t it futuristic? Now it’s time for sci-fi movie directors to think ahead because the technology shown in there fiction movies soon will become household stuff. Before few years back it was considered to be supernatural or tantalizing imagination. But now it has been made possible. Thanks to Pranav Mistry, a genius who introduced mankind to this futuristic technology.
Image processing is a method to convert an image into digital form and perform some operations on it, in order to get an enhanced image or to extract some useful information from it. It is a type of signal dispensation in which input is image, like video frame or photograph and output may be image or characteristics associated with that image. The image processing is not just confined to area that has to be studied but on knowledge of analyst. Association is another important tool in image processing through visual techniques. So analysts apply a combination of personal knowledge and collateral data to image processing.
