Ideas for use cases
Just wanted a thread to land some of the interesting things people could do with openwrt on the omega. I was poking around in menuconfig and saw a 'motion' package available with openwrt feeds for use with webcams. This would probably make it one of the more versatile motion detection to live video feed devices available.
Hmm then why is the deep research on opencv going on, that is what opencv does(I am no expert just initial reading) If this is a usable motion detection would really be interested in the complete package meaning camera and motion detection functioning. Guess we all would.
I have only used motion on the raspberry pi, but it's function is to take a photo or short video when motion is detected. It is a much simpler algorithm than opencv. You can actually use opencv to detect objects and faces. I haven't used it yet, but now have a book on the project and intend to try to get it to recognize members of my family.
I was able to get the omega to stream video pretty easily (there are other threads). It was a pain to get the streaming library compiled on the pi.
