OpenCV 4.5 simple optical flow GPU tutorial cuda::FarnebackOpticalFlow

This OpenCV tutorial is a very simple code example of GPU Cuda optical flow in OpenCV written in c++. The configuration of the project, code, and explanation are included for farneback Optical Flow method. Farneback algorithm is a dense method that is used to process all the pixels in the given image. The dense methods are slower but more accurate as all the pixels of the image are processed. In the following example, I am displaying just a few pixes based on a grid. I am not displaying all the pixes. In the opposite to dense method the sparse method like Lucas Kanade using just a selected subset of pixels. They are faster. Both methods have specific applications. Lucas-Kanade is widely used in tracking. The farneback can be used for the analysis of more complex movement in image scene and furder segmentation based on these changes. As dense methods are slightly slower, the GPU and Cuda implementation can lead to great performance improvements to calculate optical flow for all pixels o

Opencv 3.1 people detection by CascadeClassifier

People detection by Cascade Classifier Opencv

The comparison of Opencv Cascade for people detections. Default opencv cascades are good one. You can simply achive better result but you need to collect the training data. On my blog you can find the datasets for car detection. There is more than 2000 positives car samples available for you and test to learn your own detector.. 
Here in this article, I just want to show my cascade compare to cascade which are default in opencv. 

LBP cascade for people detection

Also I recently publish LBP cascade for people detection. You can download 12 stage LBP cascade LBP cascade for download. There is couple or maybe more than 3 tutorials how to use detect multiscale in opencv. Just download the LBP cascade and enjoy coding in Opencv..

Haar Cascade Classifier for People detection

In this short tutorial, I would like to test some standard haar cascade in opencv 3.1. 
My first note is where you can find this cascades.
When you download opencv for windows this cascades are located in opencv/sources/data/haarcascades

In the picture i use these types of cascades. 

haarcascade_fullbody.xml

haarcascade_upperbody.xml

haarcascade_lowerbody.xml

Visually, i can rate the cascade as rly great for fullbody an lowerbody. The upperbody cascade has trouble with my source video. Which is not its fault.

Own haar like cascade

Also, I am testing some of mine own haar cascade, which are learned by different methods like gentle boost, adaboost, etc.

Red and blue are the cascades for people detection. White is haar cascade for head detection. Check the video for results.


Video of mine haar cascade.


UPDATE

Code is HERE and cascade is LBP cascade for download

    1. I hope, that the Opencv 2.4.9-2.4.11 is not problem. In some windows version of opencv 2.4.9-3.1 there is some problems.The first is 2.4.8-9 have wrong size of cascades in xml file. Also on windows, You can use debug and release. In debug mode the detect multiscale return wrong output as to many rectangles out of image boundary. In release mode there is no problem. I dont know why. On linux this is fixed.

  4. Code is rly simple. I will release code later today or tomorrow . Give me a time to add some recommendation, info and code description. I hope, that the Opencv 2.4.9-2.4.11 is not problem . I am start with opencv 2.4.9 and 3.0.0 and now I am working only with 3.1. I would like to write another article how to train your own cascade. There are some tutorials but this is rly tricky part. You need a little bit experience with training.

Opencv GStreamer (windows) video streaming tutorial + full source code for RTSP HLS streaming

Opencv C++ simple tutorial to use GStreamer to send video to Server that converts RTSP to HLS video stream. The source code and all needed configurations are included.  O pencv is a powerful computer vision library. You can use it in production and use it for image and video processing and modern machine learning. In some applications, You may want to stream your processed video results from your C++ OpenCV app outside and not just use a simple OpenCV graphical interface. The video streaming of your results is what you are looking for. Do you want to stream processed video from your IoT device? Yes, This is mainly for Linux. Do you want to stream processed video to the Web player, broadcast the video or just use VLC to play video processed by OpenCV? You may be interested in reading the next lines.  Opencv video stream to VLC or WEB There are basically two main options with OpenCV. The first one is to write a streaming application using FFMPEG. This is a little bit more advanced appro

Opencv Web camera and Video streams in Windows subsystem for Linux WSL, by FFmpeg and GStreamer

Opencv in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a compatibility layer designed to running Linux binary executables (in ELF format) natively on Windows 10. I love it. There are some limitations to mention. The first biggest is the lack of support of CUDA, which could be a limitation for deep learning application and learning in WSL. The second trouble for Opencv development is the lack of Web camera support. This suspends WSL almost on a useless level for me until now.  VideoCapture cap;   is not working in WSL for now cap.open(0);  FFMPEG to WSL opencv program and back to WEB browser in windows This Video capture is right now not possible at in Ubuntu running under Windows (WSL). I will hit this limitation in this article. I will show you how to reach a video camera and learn something more about video streaming. Yes, the opencv processed frames will be stream to the web player on simple web site. Check the goal of this opencv tutorial on this video What you will learn

Compile Opencv with GStreamer for Visual Studio 2019 on windows 10 with and contribution modules

The goal of this tutorial is a simple step by step compilation of Opencv 4.2 with contribution extra modules with GStreamer as a bonus. The environment is Windows 10, Visual Studio 2019 C++ application. This took me almost one day of correcting of CMake setting. The goal of this tutorial is: compiled a set of OpenCV libraries with GStreamer and FFmpeg on Windows. I focus mainly on GStreamer. It is a little bit more tricky. You will reach the following information about your Opencv environment by compile and run this simple code. The Opencv GStreamer is turned as YES. GStreamer gives you a great opportunity to stream OpenCV output video outside of your program, for example, web application. I recently compiled with opencv 4.4. The update at the end of the post.  It is working!! wow, The working app and configuration in future tutorials. #include   <opencv2/opencv.hpp> #include   <iostream> using namespace cv; int   main () {      std ::cout <<  &q

Opencv C++ Tutorial Mat resize

Opencv Mat Resize   Resize the Mat or Image in the Opencv C++ tutorial. It is obviously simple task and important to learn. This tutorial is visualized step by step and well-described each of them. The main trick is in that simple code. Mat Input; Mat Resized; int ColumnOfNewImage = 60; int RowsOfNewImage = 60; resize(Input, Resized, Size( ColumnOfNewImage , RowsOfNewImage )); This code just takes an Input image and resized save to output Mat. How big is the resized image is based on the Size? Size just contains two parameters. Simple numbers of how the result should be big. The simple number of columns (width) and rows (height). That is basically it. Enjoy                                                 Boring same face again and again.  Load Image, resize and save Opencv C++ #include <Windows.h> #include "opencv2\highgui.hpp" #include "opencv2\imgproc.hpp" #include "opencv2\video\background_segm.hpp" #include &qu

Opencv C++ tutorial : Smoothing, blur, noise reduction / canceling

Smooth or blur, gaussian blur, and noise-canceling, This tutorial will learn OpenCV blur, GaussianBlur, median blur functions in C++. Additionally, the advanced technique for noise reduction  fastNlMeansDenoising family  will be introduced with a code example for each method.   You can use blurring of the image to hide identity or reduce the noise of the image.  Blur can be a very useful operation and it is a very common operation as well. For example, the anonymization of pedestrians, face or is one possible target for blue operation. The blur is the most common task to perform over the image to reduce noise. The noise reduction is more task for Gaussian blur than for simple blur operation. The various blur operations are very common for image processing on mobile devices.  The more important is the robustness issues of the data in pre-processing for machine learning. Sometimes, by blurring the images of the dataset can have a positive effect on the robustness of the achieved de

Opencv tutorial RTMP video streaming to NGINX restream as HLS

Video streaming Tutorial of sending processed Opencv video to NGINX and distributing video from NGINX (broadcast) by HLS stream for a wider audience, like multiple web players, VLC, or any other video stream receiver. Opencv application HLS streaming by GStreamer and NGINX  We will use GStreamer to send video from the Opencv application by rtmp2sink to an RTMP module in NGINX. In our example, the server is a widely used NGINX server with an Nginx-RTMP-module. The NGINX will receive RTMP video from Opencv and restream as an HLS video stream considered for multiple end consumers. This is a follow-up to the previous article about Video streaming from Opencv to RtspSimpleServer by rtsp protocol.   The goal is the same. Send video from Opencv to the server and restream the video for a wider audience. The difference is that RtspSimpleServer running on windows, NGINX is running in docker (WSL2). The one-to-one communication between Opencv and RtspSimpleServer was established by RTSP protocol

Opencv 4 C++ Tutorial simple Background Subtraction

This method is used to learn what belongs to the background of the image and what belongs to the foreground. The static cameras that monitor the area can very easily recognize, what is part of the image that is always here or there is something that is new and moving over the background.  Background subtraction Visual studio 2019 project setup If you have Opencv 4+ compiled or installed only steps you need to do is set the include directory with OpenCV header files. Set the Additional library Directories that point to \lib folder. Just note that Visual Studio 2019 should use VC16 \lib. Finally, As additional dependencies, specify the libs used to resolve the function implementation in the code. The list for Opencv 420 is here. The different version of opencv is using different numbering for example opencv 440 will use opencv_core440.lib.  opencv_bgsegm420.lib opencv_core420.lib opencv_videoio420.lib opencv_imgproc420.lib opencv_highgui420.lib opencv_video420.lib  Background sustract
