Tracking Still Works !

GroG's picture

Tracking still works - this was my view running it from eclipse..  Wherever I clicked it would center the pan/tilt kit quickly.

The next step is to integrate it back into InMoov and verify everything works.  Then after that I can start working on Cortex again so that both InMoov and simple Pan / Tillt kits can benefit from the same service.

Tracking service - startup

GroG's picture

The Tracking service is evolving and in the process much of the scripting of the past does not work.  It has begun to incorporate more features too, for example it can switch in background filters.  At some point these will be used to identify new objects of interest - then a tracking point will be set.


Point Cloud Fixed

Raver1975 pointed out that the PointCloud was broken !  I looked into and found a simple naming issue - its fixed, but some other thing I noticed was the abismal performance of the actual display.  The root cause of that known issue is it currently uses Java3D which has been a dead project for years.


New Build Server Now Building & New Status Display

The new build server is now building MRL !  Additionally, there is a new status bar at the bottom of the GUI which is now beginning to be utilized as a display for important information, warnings, and errors.  Quicker than looking through logs !

New Build Server !
Or at least new operating system - now Ubuntu 12.10.  It used to be a very old Fedor system, so getting the hang of Ubuntu is going to take a little while.  Right now I'm rebuilding X11 with an amazing crazy script which uses all processors to do the compile.  This will by my 5th attempt since it overheated and shutdown on all previous attempts.  Now I have a cup of water to cool it down.
