About the Course

In this 1-hour long tutorial, you will learn how to do Computer Vision Object Detection from Images and Videos. At the end of the tutorial, you'll have learned how to detect faces, eyes and a combination of them both from images, how to detect people walking and cars moving from videos and finally how to detect a car's plate. This tutorial runs on Coursera's hands-on project platform called Rhyme. On Rhyme, you do projects in a hands-on manner in your browser. You will get instant access to pre-configured cloud desktops containing all of the software and data you need for the project. Everything is already set up directly in your Internet browser so you can just focus on learning. For this project, you’ll get instant access to a cloud desktop with (e.g. Python, Jupyter, and Tensorflow) pre-installed. Prerequisites: You should have a fundamental knowledge of Python and OpenCV. Notes: - You will be able to access the cloud desktop 5 times. However, you will be able to access instructions videos as many times as you want. - This tutorial works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

Excellent project for beginners in this domain. Clear explanation and repeated practice over various scenarios made it easier to pick up the codes for object detection.

The course was pretty amazing, especially the tutor was nice and I could understand everything he explained and I am in love with Rhyme, it makes learning so easy.

Good guided project which covers how to use cascade files to detect objects in an image with open cv.

It would be better, if we explain modules and its parameters in detail

Good for beginers. You need to complete atleast the image basics with open cv course before doing this for a easy understanding(Recommended Images basics and Video Basics with openCV). We will learn to detect and draw a rectangle over identified faces, bodies,cars,car plates etc.. Would be great if the classfier part is also explained

Accent was hard to understand for me. I was expected that the inside of the classifier/detector will discuss but got frustrated. This only taught how to load images and and use a classifier!!

My session crashed midway and I couldn't reconnect.

The guide says you can download your files, but I couldn't find a way to do that with Rhyme.

Meh! Should be enough if you already have experience with other techs, say matlab, and just wanna "translate" to OpenCV.

Fun use cases, but too repetitive. Not enough explanations about what's going on.

This project is good for an initial understanding, but I would request to increase access to the online hardware systems and at the same time provide better pre requisites and also the official documents/ code to get downloaded on the system.
