|Here is the flowchart Andrew mentioned:
If I were to do it again (and I will) I would make it clear that processing would be taking place over a number of networked machines.
It is difficult to get OpenGL working with Python - on Windows. There is always another pile of errors and some kind of module missing. And documentation is poor to non-existent.
Speaking of poor documentation - try EyesWeb! It's actually kind of fun to puzzle out exactly what does what. Well, it's frustrating too, depending on my mood.
IR may not be necessary considering the silly things we can do with adaptive background subtraction (which makes it sound a lot more clever than the actual effect), but light levels should be changing quite a lot throughout the Cosmosis process, so IR is definitely desirable.
We'll work on it tomorrow.
I should like to get a simple data pipeline working by next week for the MADT 401 reviews, just any kind of input from EyesWeb to a Python program to a display (or sound?) will do. And from that skeleton, we'd simply build up the complexity!
