YOLO and Tiny-YOLO object detection on the Raspberry Pi and Movidius NCS

In this tutorial, you will learn how to utilize YOLO and Tiny-YOLO for near real-time object detection on the Raspberry Pi with a Movidius NCS. The YOLO object detector is often cited as being one of the fastest deep learning-based object detectors, achieving a higher FPS rate than computationally expensive two-stage detectors (ex. Faster R-CNN) […]

OpenCV Vehicle Detection, Tracking, and Speed Estimation

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use OpenCV and Deep Learning to detect vehicles in video streams, track them, and apply speed estimation to detect the MPH/KPH of the moving vehicle. This tutorial is inspired by PyImageSearch readers who have emailed me asking for speed estimation computer vision solutions. As pedestrians taking the […]

OpenVINO, OpenCV, and Movidius NCS on the Raspberry Pi

Inside this tutorial, you will learn how to utilize the OpenVINO toolkit with OpenCV for faster deep learning inference on the Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pis are great — I love the quality hardware and the supportive community built around the device. That said, for deep learning, the current Raspberry Pi hardware is inherently resource-constrained and […]
