I want to start with some basic detection type use cases to start learning the ropes, but could use some guidance on what MV techniques are relevant to what use cases. I get the impression that there are numerous techniques that could potentially be used to achieve the same result for uses cases such as:
I want to:
- Detect the presence of my car in the garage and know if it's arriving or leaving.
Detect the state of my garage door - open/closed.
Detect someone in the vicinity of my door and capture the video
Detect in Touch and go type applications - various sports require lap counting or possibly timing
I know all these things have been hammered out in some form or another by the MV experts and I'm looking for some good resources that discuss these issues both in general terms and, all the better, in terms of OpenMV APIs.
Which specific object types or algorithms would be most applicable to certain use cases? Even a "taxonomy" of MV use cases would be helpful, I think.
If you had one book, one article, one course (ie: udacity, coursera, etc) or one web site to read on MV, what would it be?
What have you found most helpful in terms of approaching MV use cases and problems associated with various techniques? With or without OpenMV in the picture.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
