Python Project-based Workshop: How to track motion from bird eye multiple camera perspectives

On Friday, November 27, 2020 at 10:00 a.m., Enas Tarawneh will present “Python Project-based Workhsop: How to build your own intelligent agent”.

Day & Time: Friday, November 27, 2020
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Speaker: Enas Tarawneh

Organizers: IEEE Toronto WIE, IM/RA, York University WiCSE

Location: Virtual

Contact: Ayda Naserialiabadi

Abstract: The workshop will focus on extracting images from multiple sources (webcam, video, ROS bag) and perform image processing to detect regions of high motion or change over a period. The workshop will also show how to stitch the multiple bird eye views from multiple cameras together to form one image of the floor where the motion is detected. This workshop includes: 

a) Extracting frames from a camera, video or ROS bag and generating a image stream 

b) Stitching the multiple bird eye views and calibrating to create one 2D image of the floor 

c) Perform multiple image processing to extract motion 

d) Create a motion map on the generated image of the floor.
