Just barely reached a pretty nice milestone today! With the computer vision object detection and tracking code mostly working, and the new Rust-based gimbal code coming together, I can just barely start to close the loop and start aiming the gimbal based on data from the vision subsystem. Here's some raw footage from tonight's experiments:

Just found out about this. Not sure if this any help at this point but I made this:

Its basically just darknet but extended with websocket and osc so you can just stream detections to a different computer or program on the same computer without fiddling a with darknet itself.

Hi Micah - I have never seen in the last time such an impressive work  made from a single person. In the 80'ties I had studied automatic technologies - that was the the time with the Intel 8080 and Zilog Z80 processors. Some software had been related to object recognizing too for automatic purpose. But this has been a rudimentary beginning for single tasks - perhaps - distinguish a little object from a bigger or a triangular from a rectangular one and so on. You have made a very impressive level of recognizing and database-related livesampling one on a high level. My respect. I'm an old guy - all my live selflerning things and this site here has delighted my senses. Have a good time and many heartly greetings from me to you and Tuco :-)
