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 Multiple People Tracking. It is necessary to be perfect ?

Multiple people tracking 

Opencv tracking of multiple people example video and some ideas about the business behind.. 
I would like to mention that this video is not related on my any curent business. This is just love to computer vision. 

This short blog post should be about something else. 

Multi target tracking

Problem of computer vision business potencial

  • People point to any mistake of algorithm. Mistakes are visible. People dont care if the big data gives you huge statistics error. They are not able to count the milions line of something. 
  • They are able to count what they are really see on video. 
Where is the point. Even the error is visible and sometines huge. This gives you better result than one man counting the people from the window all day long. 
Are you able to track and monitor what every on screen doing and count targets and write the results somewhere. 

No

Do not sell video. Sell the data

This is important. Maybe the most important think. You are provide data about the day activity about the year activity what ever.  
Not the person for one day counting of the trafic on the Prague town center crossing. 

Video delivery or internet of things

You have to solve the problem with stream video delivery to cloud as cheap as it posible. 

There is one think. Internet of thinks. Maybe is better old aproach just manage the computer vision where the camera is located.. Computers are smaller and faster. The video delivery is problem.. You have to deal with so many problems. Insted of transfering just the data. 

Benefits are that the people infront of the monitor just see your mistakes.

Cost effective computer vision 

There is maybe question what is effective. Process the video in cloud has also many advantages. Scales. Updates. Your algorithm is under control. You can handle what ever resolution. This is only issue of the cost of your solution. It is not necesary with some cameras to manage your own HW in that solution. 

I have a lots of idea like that. I spent lots of time not only on algorithm itself. For example another huge topic is 

Self configuration of computer vision algorithm

Yes this one. Not a spend 3 hours or months to make perfect youtube video. There is no reason. 
Algorithm should be somehow self configurating.  And it may not be perfect. Let the rest of the world accept error also in computer vision. 

Have a nice evening and let me know. What do you think.

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 HSL video stream to web

This tutorial will show you all components, configuration, and code needed to steam video output results from Opencv C++ to your Web player. The C++ program will take any video input and process this video. The processed video will be stream outside of OpenCV using the GStreamer pipeline (Windows part). The HLS video produces one Playlist file and several MPEG-TS segments of videos. This several HLS outputs are stored in the Windows file system. I am using WSL 2, windows subsystem for Linux to run Ubuntu distribution. Here the NGINX is installed with the RTMP module. NGINX is distributing a video stream from the windows file system to the web.  Let's have a look at this in more detail.  What is covered? Opencv C++ part + GStreamer pipeline NGINX configuration Architecture Web Player for your HLS stream What is not covered? Detailed instalation of Opencv + Gstreamer more here  GStreamer installation  ,  GStreamer Installation 2  on windows Detailed installation of NGINX + RTMP modul

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

Opencv VideoCapture File, Web Camera, RTSP stream

Opencv VideoCapture File, Camera and stream Opencv tutorial simple code in C++ to capture video from File, Ip camera stream and also the web camera plug into the computer. The key is to have installed the FFMPEG especially in case of reading the stream of IP cameras. In windows just use Opencv Installation by Nugets packages  Here . Simple easy under 2 minutes of installation. In Linux, you need to follow the instruction below. If you are on Debian Like package system. Under Fedora Red hat dist just use a different approach. Code is simple and installation is the key..  Windows use nugets packages Linux you have to install and build Opencv With FFMPEG. Also simple.  It is easy to capture video in OpenCV Video capture  in OpenCV is a really easy task, but for a little bit experienced user.  What is the problem? The problem is the installation of Opencv without recommended dependencies. Just install all basic libs that are recommended on the website. # Basic packa
