This week, we will be announcing our next 96Boards GIVEAWAY!
In our last issues #13 we made quite a few announcements around Linaro Connect and the website. Even if you missed it, you can still find all of our issues cataloged in our website repository, here.
This week we have a new repo to announce and a project to showcase.
The “projects” repository
There are times when the community would like to contribute to 96Boards development by creating projects on their own and showcasing to others. To assist in this cycle, we have come up with a project repository for hosting any projects based on 96Boards. This repository is open to everyone who wants to contribute and make their work accessible to the entire community.
Are you feeling like submitting a project? Don't wait, just go straight to the repository and get familiar with the Contributing guidelines. It would be good to discuss the project beforehand with 96Boards team by opening a github issue. Once your project idea is approved, you can submit the project by following submission guidelines in CONTRIBUTE.md.
The First Project of many - Home Surveillance
Part 1 - Introductory blog - Here we introduced the Home Surveillance project and outlined a roadmap to our end goal. Towards the end of this blog, information about how to contribute to the project was also mentioned.
Part 2 - Facial recognition using OpenCV - This part focussed on getting the face detection to run using OpenCV on Dragonboard 410c. In order to make life easier for reader's, installation steps for OpenCV 3.2 was also included. Along with the blog, a video showing a working demonstration was attached.
Part 3 - Webcam tracking using 96Boards Sensors Mezzanine - This part focussed on tracking faces in front of webcam using servo mount connected to a Sensors mezzanine, controlled by Dragonboard 410c. Along with the blog, a video showing the working demonstration was attached.
Part 4 - Setting up your Amazon Web Service (AWS) Cloud Service - This part focussed on setting up AWS S3 account and streamed the detected faces to it.
Part 5 - Bringing it all together! In this blog you will get the final step to the project, which is adding a triggered notification to your system and steps for stitching it all together into a final working home surveillance system using your 96Boards.
Brazilian Partnership Program
The program has begun to ramp up big time as the event moves into it's last phase! Of the 20 projects that have been submitted, many have maintained their frequent updates and provided much information around what they plan to present during the finals. Only 10 days left for these teams to really shine using the 96Boards DragonBoard 410c. For more information about this program please visit the resource site. You can also find their list of projects on the Embarcados website. For anyone who is interested in talking with the teams, many of them join us during our weekly open forum at the end of the countdown.
