Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications (Amrita WNA) and Amrita Centre for Research and Development (ACRD) will organize a Workshop on Marker Detection and Tracking using Python on June 5, 2019.
Marker tracking using OpenCV in python entails computer vision algorithms used to detect specific patterns from feeds obtained using camera. The goal is to detect certain predefined patterns on the frames obtained from a video stream such as a video camera or a short movie clip.
Marker tracking forms the foundation of several optical based positioning systems. To name a few, 1) wheel alignment in cars, 2) augmented reality, 3) camera calibration, 4) Simultaneous location and mapping – SLAM, 5) indoor localization. Through this workshop, you can aquire insights into the basic building blocks that go into detection and tracking.
The workshop will give you a glimpse into the nature of challenging work of practical societal relevance that goes at the research center. The Center has M. Tech. and Ph. D. programs in wireless and affiliated technologies in which the students get to work on many exciting inter-disciplinary system-level projects involving advanced hardware and software. Many of these funded projects are in collaboration with international institutions from around the globe and involve practical field deployments in the real world. These projects include IoT system for real-time landslide monitoring and early warning, affordable internet access in the deep sea for marine fishermen, wearable healthcare systems for continuous monitoring of vitals, IoT systems for smart infrastructures, etc. Do sign-up for this one-day workshop to get a sneak preview of the cutting-edge research activities at Amrita WNA.
The capacity is limited, so please hurry up!
