Vehicle Detection for Cyclists Using a Raspberry Pi 3 with OpenCV Haar Cascades

Real-time video image detection running on a Raspberry Pi 3 standalone

The results of experiment 4A were a success. 4A, versioned "WOFDAV Alpha POC 0.1", was intended to establish that the hardware, software, and approach was sound, to learn more about how to do this, to find limitations to overcome in future experiments, and to continue the fun engineering process.

I will post further details in future posts. This is just a quick progress update before I go hit the road to get more data.

WOFDAV stands for Watch Out For Distracted Autonomous Vehicles.

Up next in experiment 4B:
  • Improve memory footprint and performance
  • Work on multi-threading
  • Look into leaner modules
  • Integrate camera
  • Road training
  • Road testing
  • Detection noise filtering (detect unicorns not herds)
  • Experiment 5 is planned to included TensorFlow

Current status: giddy.
