Since deciding that I cannot use MATLAB because of the additional addons necessary to use webcams, I have been deciding between C# and Python as the next language to try. I’ve settled on Python for the time being, using VideoCapture to connect to the webcams and Numpy to process the data. It turns out that Python + VideoCapture + Numpy is actually rather similar in functionality and syntax to MATLAB with its image processing library.
I am taking an independent study course this winter in Image Recognition / Computer Vision. The primary goal of my independent study is to look into determining depth information from video feed(s) in real time and then representing that depth information using a 3D audio map (headphones).
