Hey all just finished polishing the newest Raspberry Pi tutorial ‘Object and Animal Recognition With Raspberry Pi and OpenCV’
If you have ever wanted to actively search and classify all kinds of household objects and common animals with a palm-sized computer then this guide is for you. I will show you exactly how to do this so you can set up a similar system in your own Maker-verse. Furthermore, I will demonstrate how you can refine the identification so it searches only for particular desired targets. Then we’ll take this to the next level and demonstrate how you can alter the code to make the Raspberry Pi control physical hardware (a servo ) whenever it identifies that particular target.
The Coco library used here will enable our Raspberry Pi will be able to identify 91 unique objects/animals and provide a constantly updating confidence rating. If the objects and animals don’t suit your particular application there are many many many other pre-trained libraries for you to use in your next project. Machine learning has never been more accessible.
