What I want to do:
I would like to write a program that is detecting objects in real-time (There will be more features in the future, so I really hope to write smth that I could modify and add to). I’m just starting with Computer Vision, I’m C++ developer and have some experience with OpenCV - that’s why I would prefer to use OpenCV and that language for that. I aim at performance and speed with stable video input and I read that DNN models run the best in that regard. I looked around the internet and tried to install everything (CUDA, cuDNN, OpenCV, Yolo), I successfully run some examples from yolo but I have no idea how to implement that to my cpp code. I looked around for some step-by-step guide, but still, without success - link errors in OpenCV, VisualStudio doesn’t see yolo, code examples don’t run, my IDE doesn’t see OpenCV define, builds are extra slow, and even occasional bluescreens! I’m sure I did something wrong but doesn’t know what, because to start anything I needed to reach different sources that ware not necessarily compatible
As my first milestone, I want to just run some code examples that detect faces on my webcam. I hope that after achieving that I would have an easier time with anything more.
I’m working on Windows + Visual Studio
What I’m looking for here:
So I’m here to ask, for some help with research. Maybe someone knows what step should I take or what phases should I look for to successfully do that or at last help me achieve my first milestone?
