First of all, I am a total newbie to image processing. I have a project idea, part of which will involve doing the following:
I have a white board and a camera (a normal webcam by z-star). I will draw a shape on the white board. The camera will capture the video and process it to identify the shape I have drawn. To keep it simple, the shapes that can be identified using by the program will be limited.
I want to execute this idea and will learn anything that is required to make it happen. I want to get started in image processing, but just enough so I can execute this for now. Will incrementally study more. Can you give me any pointers on where to get started?
