Codecs

In this module our esteemed Professor Harinath Garudadri will talk about coders and decoders (Codecs). This will allow us to make better use of our multimedia choices when working with the DragonBoardTM 410c. We want to look at the motivation behind using Codecs, the different ways to take advantage of redundancies when using codecs and finally the ability to take advantage of different receiver / transmitter combinations. If we are able to understand the way that information is sent and received over the data plane we can create and use the right codecs....

Computer Vision and our Application

In this module we will talk in depth about computer vision. We will talk about a variety of current applications of computer vision, and brainstorm the future applications you all are capable of making! Ultimately we will set up a computer vision development environment on your Linaro/Debian release capable of creating a wide variety of computer vision projects. By the end of this module we will have built a great basic application in Python, we will add a few features and pass the code on to you! Hopefully this code can serve as a great template for you all to use....
