The team behind the OpenDataCam have just released a version 2.0 of their open source tool to quantify the world. As already reported on CAN last year, OpenDataCam consists of a camera attached to a mini computer that is running an object detection algorithm that counts and tracks moving objects. The board is equipped with a GPU (graphical processing unit), which allows it to process many parallel image threads at once. Great tool for image analysis and video processing.
“The main change in the design process achieved by using generative design is that traditional craftsmanship recedes into the background, and abstraction and information become the new principal elements.”
