Online course recommendation

I’m a big fan of online courses, especially the ones that feature good professors with valuable professional and teaching experience. It feels like you are at the university again, but from the comfort (or discomfort) of your chair at home.

I have recently completed “Image and video processing: From Mars to Hollywood with a stop at the hospital” by¬†Guillermo Sapiro.

Image segmentation nodes for ROS

Hello guys!

Check out this part of my (Bence Magyar) MSc thesis work where I created ROS nodes to mask regions in an image based on different attributes.

The nodes can be applied on each other’s output in a pipeline-style way.

They can help to speed up your Computer Vision algorithms by masking the not interesting (defined by you) regions of the images.

Happy segmenting!

Beaglebone and ROS + Webcam + remote ROS master (+OpenCV)

This tutorial assumes that you already have Ubuntu on your Beaglebone. If not, you can get it done this way: https://fleshandmachines.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/beaglebone-on-ubuntu-11-04/

Although Fuerte is out I don’t recommend it yet.
Connect to your BeagleBone using ssh.

A nice guide can be found to install ROS Electric here:
