I have started collecting papers on my three ideas. There are many different sources that have used gesture controlled navigation in the past so I think it will be hard to differentiate from them, but most of them seem to … Read More
I have been trying to get the sensor to give me significant results and have had a lot of trouble with that. I mostly did research and experimentation to try and get it to work.
This week I finished my implementation of the SIFT algorithm, starting to work on implementing SURF next. Also looking ways to organize images to improve accuracy. Currently planning to get keypoints, then organize photos based on similar keypoints rather than … Read More

This week I haven’t been able to get as much work done as I planned on. These are things that I did: – Reread the proposal to answer some questions in the outline. – Finish writing the outline. – Make … Read More
This week I talked to Dave about the delay on my database. I am waiting to hear back from Charlie andor Craig so I can start working on building the database and connecting the dots. Until then I have read … Read More
Built a prototype testing agent for the Capstone that should in theory take in a file of problem states and go through them with each Heuristic(Neural Network not yet ready) then output the solution size, number of nodes visited and … Read More
Further deliberated on my 3 ideas, I really enjoy the idea about replacing the keyboard and mouse set up with a gesture recognition system from a 2D camera, most gesture recog systems require another device that one must buy, but … Read More
I have changed two of my ideas upon re-evaluating the achievability of the project given my skill and the time limit I have
This week, I finally got my own laptop so I redownloaded all the necessary software and libraries for my gesture recognition system. Using the OpenCV library in Python, I was finally able to use the camera to detect the hand … Read More
This week I met with Ajit and discussed some of the necessary features for the user interface that the administrator will be using. This involved seeing a list of recently checked out items, adding new objects, and adding new users. … Read More
In terms of implementation, I have created 4 different heuristics functions for my Capstone that take in a state and output a value based on how good the state is. with 4 being inadmissible. Technically 5 as 2 heuristics are … Read More
This week I worked on developing a script that takes a directory and determines if the contents are all images of the same type, and if they aren’t converts them to jpgs. I also meet with my adviser and starting … Read More
This week dealt with the focus of the FFT and other conversion formulas. In recognizing that the Fast Fourier Transform is an algorithm that computes the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) of a sequence, or its inverse (IDFT), you understand how … Read More
Here is what I worked on for my project this week: -Worked with poly tool to process two simultaneous notes. -Got it working but temporarily disabled the circle of fifths map table-Now midi messages are sent to two paths for … Read More
For this week, I have been mainly working on: – Make a few changes on the coding environment for my project from last week for better efficiency. – Follow Xunfei’s advice to consider some other music datasets. I eventually decided … Read More
Idea 1: Optical Character Recognition using Machine Learning Optical character recognition is not a completely new field of research. However, with the advance of today’s technology, we can apply machine learning to optical character recognition and therefore can recognize not … Read More
Topic Name: Earlham Tennis App Developing an app to use it as a way of improvement for the tennis players. Entering data during matches to get score stats, errors and serve percentages. All this data will be stored in a … Read More
Researched how image processing works (tutorials, examples using python and open-source software OpenCV). ~20 minutes on 1/19/19, ~30 minutes on 1/21/19 Made sure all necessary software was downloaded to my computer. ~30 minutes on 1/17/19 Adjusted timeline. ~15 minutes on 1/23/19
