#Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (21/N)

Hi ! In my post series I already wrote about how to detect faces. We can do this with a camera and OpenCV. However, a drone can also be moved on command, so let’s write some lines to detect a face, and calculate the orientation and distance of the detected face from the center camera…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (21/N)

Hi ! We already have the drone camera feed ready to process, so let’s do some Image Segmentation today. As usual, let’s start with the formal definition of Image Segmentation In digital image processing and computer vision, image segmentation is the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple segments (sets of pixels, also known…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (20/N)

Hi ! Today I face another challenge: I needed to overlay an image on top of another. Something like this. Lucky for me, and as usual, OpenCV allow us to do this with a few lines of code. Let’s take a look. Line 8. Define a custom size for all the images: background image and…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (19/N)

Hi ! Today I’ll step back a couple of posts, and add 2 simple lines to allow me to save a video file from the Drone camera. This is a request, and it’s makes a lot of sense to have recorded a file with the drone camera. The video will later contains detected objects and…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (18/N)

Hi ! Once we have the a custom vision trained model instance, we can use it to recognize objects from the drone camera feed. Read my previous posts for descriptions on these. Another interesting scenario, is to save local files for every detected object. In the following code, I’ll save 2 different files for every…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (17/N)

Hi ! In my previous post, I shared an example where I analyzed the camera feed using a Image Recognition model created using Custom Vision. Today I’ll expand the sample, and show in real time the detected MVPs logos with a frame in the drone camera feed. Let’s take a look at the demo working…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (16/N)

Hi ! Let’s use Custom Vision to analyze the images from our drone camera. In this scenario, I created a custom model to recognize MVP awards from my MVP wall. I know, that’s bragging, but I like it. Disclaimer: There are plenty of documentation and tutorials about Custom Vision. I won’t go deep on the…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (15/N)

#Personal – Kids and STEM: my 2 cents to #IWD2020 #PressforProgress #CDC2020

Hi! Some time ago I posted about the amazing experience I had at the Caribbean Developer Conference (@caribbeandevcon) in Punta Cana. And if you are wondering “How this is related to International Women Day?”, let me share this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2aX4g_sTUQ That’s Martina (my 10yo daughter) with Scott Hanselman talking about Computer Vision. She was part…… Continue reading #Personal – Kids and STEM: my 2 cents to #IWD2020 #PressforProgress #CDC2020

#Event – Download all #MSIgnite sessions from the [Developer’s guide to AI] Learning Path

Hi! A few weeks ago I wrote a post where I explained how to download slides and videos for all the Microsoft Ignite 2019 sessions. It was very simple, just search for your preferred session at Just navigate to https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions And, in the session you got the link to download the slides and the video…… Continue reading #Event – Download all #MSIgnite sessions from the [Developer’s guide to AI] Learning Path
