Linux, Java and Video
I recently bought a wireless camera from x10.com. It came with a VCR commander and a couple of motion sensors.
Those things are supposed to work together.
But i thought that making it work with my linux box would have been a better way to handle it...
Install the frame grabber card
- Linux Red Hat 7.2 vanilla installation
- Hauppage Win TV 98 PCI
To install just do the following sequence as root :
- /sbin/insmod videodev
- /sbin/insmod i2c-core
- /sbin/insmod i2c-dev
- modprobe bttv
Now you can start xawtv.
I found a simple java layer for Video4Linux.
So now I have to create a simple program to detect movement between images.
I made a couple of spikes and now i can tell that it's nearly working. I've used JAI (Java Advanced Imaging) to manipulate images.
I need to find a better algorithm / tools to detect movement between frames. Actually my wireless cam seems to send frames with too much noise in my opinion.
I need to find a way to substract this noise.
I did something like this (substract noise from wireless cam) last year, and now I've got to do it again, contact me if you're still interested. I'm in Montreal too. -- RobinMillette
