Questions


Development Software

Decided



NetBeans 7.0.1 with OpenCV through JavaCV wrapper


Works on every team member's computer


Netbeans is a free IDE


Platform Independent*


Document made that explains how to install all
software

components



Edge detection and contour interpolation program
created for testing


Shows contours as blue lines in real time


Utilizes video source from built in webcam


5 Major Components

Project
description written and submitted to Dr.
Elmaghraby



SyRS

started with project description and background
information (needs additional input)



Image Processing


Analyze image segmentation techniques and begin coding at
minimum


Analyze approaches for registration using optical flow



Camera Calibration and Parameterization


Utilize ProCamLib software tool that is suggested by JavaCV (if
possible) or select an appropriate tool


Find the camera parameterization matrix (of webcam)



Documentation


Finish SyRS initial base
-
line


What are the camera specifications & parameters?



What sensors are on the MAV and do we have access to
sensors?



Can we use these sensors to get information about the
velocity and angular velocity (most important)?



Suggestions?
