Episode 0: Introduction to OpenCV

Learn to write your first ‘Hello World’ program on Jetson with OpenCV. You’ll learn a simple compilation pipeline with Midnight Commander, cmake, and OpenCV4Tegra’s mat library, as you build for the first time.

Episode 1: CV Mat Container

Learn to work with mat, OpenCV’s primary container. You’ll learn memory allocation for a basic image matrix, then test a CUDA image copy with sample grayscale and color images.

Episode 2: Multimedia I/O

Learn to manipulate images from various sources: JPG and PNG files, and USB webcams. Run standard filters such as Sobel, then learn to display and output back to file. Implement a rudimentary video playback mechanism for processing and saving sequential frames.

Episode 3: Basic Operations

Start with an app that displays an image as a Mat object, then resize, rotate it or detect “canny” edges, then display the result. Then, to ignore the high-frequency edges of the image’s feather, blur the image and then run the edge detector again. With higher window sizes, the feather’s edges disappear, leaving behind only the more significant edges present in the input image.

Episode 4: Feature Detection and Optical Flow

Take an input MP4 video file (footage from a vehicle crossing the Golden Gate Bridge) and detect corners in a series of sequential frames, then draw small marker circles around the identified features. Watch as these demarcated features are tracked from frame to frame. Then, color the feature markers depending on how far they move frame to frame. This simplistic analysis allows points distant from the camera—which move less—to be demarcated as such.

Episode 5: Descriptor Matching and Object Detection

Use features and descriptors to track the car from the first frame as it moves from frame to frame. Store (ORB) descriptors in a Mat and match the features with those of the reference image as the video plays. Learn to filter out extraneous matches with the RANSAC algorithm. Then multiply points by a homography matrix to create a bounding box around the identified object. The result isn’t perfect, but try different filtering techniques and apply optical flow to improve on the sample implementation. Getting good at computer vision requires both parameter-tweaking and experimentation.

Episode 6: Face Detection

Use cascade classifiers to detect objects in an image. Implement a high-dimensional function and store evaluated parameters in order to detect faces using a pre-fab HAAR classifier. Then, to avoid false positives, apply a normalization function and retry the detector. Classifier experimentation and creating your own set of evaluated parameters is discussed via the OpenCV online documentation.

Episode 7: Detecting Simple Shapes Using Hough Transform

Use Hough transforms to detect lines and circles in a video stream. Call the canny-edge detector, then use the HoughLines function to try various points on the output image to detect line segments and closed loops. These lines and circles are returned in a vector, and then drawn on top of the input image. Adjust the parameters of the circle detector to avoid false positives; begin by applying a Gaussian blur, similar to a step in Part 3.

Episode 8: Monocular Camera Calibration

Learn how to calibrate a camera to eliminate radial distortions for accurate computer vision and visual odometry. Using the concept of a pinhole camera, model the majority of inexpensive consumer cameras. Using several images with a chessboard pattern, detect the features of the calibration pattern, and store the corners of the pattern. Using a series of images, set the variables of the non-linear relationship between the world-space and the image-space. Lastly, apply rotation, translation, and distortion coefficients to modify the input image such that the input camera feed will match the pinhole camera model, to less than a pixel of error. Lastly, review tips for accurate monocular calibration.
