Just for fun, looking into a DIY project, but which could spin off to a com mercial product, I am looking into image recognition.
For the application I would need the unit to recognize an object. The refer ence object would be stored in a database with a picture from different ang les, and the SW would compare an observed picture to the reference images a nd product a percentage match figure.
The image would not be a simple figure, but could be of different sizes and colors, but with the same fundamental shape. The image could for example b e a tree, and the system would need to determine what kind of species it wa s and report the match figure.
So, knowing little of current developments, it this feasible or would that be 10 years into the future?
NI Labwindows has image recognition SW but I thing it will only cover basic shapes
Google has some advanced function in Google Photos:.html
to day and that would then be a showstopper
