I’m writing a book on Computer Vision and the Raspberry Pi (and I need your input).

Today is a big day — I’m formally announcing that I’m writing a brand new book on Computer Vision with the Raspberry Pi. I’ve been wanting to write this book for years, arguably ever since I started playing around with the Raspberry Pi and OpenCV. But the timing never worked out quite right. I was […]

A fun, hands-on deep learning project for beginners, students, and hobbyists

Today’s blog post is a “bonus tutorial” in our most recent series on building a complete, end-to-end deep learning application: Part 1: How to (quickly) build a deep learning image dataset Part 2: Keras and Convolutional Neural Networks Part 3: Running Keras models on iOS with CoreML In this series we have been fulfilling a […]

Real-time object detection on the Raspberry Pi with the Movidius NCS

Today’s post is inspired by Danielle, a PyImageSearch reader who emailed me last week and asked: Hi Adrian, I’m enjoying your blog and I especially liked last week’s post about image classification with the Intel Movidius NCS. I’m still considering purchasing an Intel Movidius NCS for a personal project. My project involves object detection with […]

Getting started with the Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick

Let me ask you three questions: What if you could could run state-of-the-art neural networks on a USB stick? What if you could see over 10x performance on this USB stick compared to your CPU? And what if this entire device costs under $100? Sound interesting? Enter Intel’s Movidius Neural Compute Stick (NCS). Raspberry Pi […]

Keras and deep learning on the Raspberry Pi

Today’s blog post is the most fun I’ve EVER had writing a PyImageSearch tutorial. It has everything we have been discussing the past few weeks, including: Deep learning Raspberry Pis 3D Christmas trees References to HBO’s Silicon Valley “Not Hotdog” detector Me dressing up as Santa Clause! In keeping with the Christmas and Holiday season, […]

Raspberry Pi: Facial landmarks + drowsiness detection with OpenCV and dlib

Today’s blog post is the long-awaited tutorial on real-time drowsiness detection on the Raspberry Pi! Back in May I wrote a (laptop-based) drowsiness detector that can be used to detect if the driver of a motor vehicle was getting tired and potentially falling asleep at the wheel. The driver drowsiness detector project was inspired by […]

Raspberry Pi: Deep learning object detection with OpenCV

A few weeks ago I demonstrated how to perform real-time object detection using deep learning and OpenCV on a standard laptop/desktop. After the post was published I received a number of emails from PyImageSearch readers who were curious if the Raspberry Pi could also be used for real-time object detection. The short answer is “kind […]
