Butterfly Effect(SuHwee & ZiFeng) Week 13 Milestone

This week we have to release the butterfly as they cannot be kept for too long. It was quite a sad moment as we have been taking care of them since they was a chrysalis (pupa) and to the moment they break through their chrysalis.

This butterfly was quite special as it did not leave the moment we open the lid. He stay with us for quite sometime and we manage to capture some good shots for documentation! We currently have release all out butterfly however, we have tried that the camera are able to track the movement of the butterfly.

By using cv.jit.blobs allow us to group the same colour together. We filter out the unwanted colour and track only black.  We will be using white background so that the butterfly colour stands out. Threshold are also set to set the rage wider ranging about 30.

We are able to the create some effect in react to the movement. However we still working on the effects. 

We also manage to make the field to look like grass by adding one more straight line title at an angle connected to the original line. We also explore the different jit.bfg noise provided and decide on noise.sparse.convolution. I also manage to adjust the position of the noise which makes the lines appear differently.

Next we will be working on the reaction of effects and also second part of our project, turning on/off fan or light bulb. Max will be send the output after the butterfly cross over and creates the reaction to icube X wireless to control the input of fan or light.

We have not yet decided which to go for but best scenarios is fan which will represents the butterfly effect best.
