Thermal Detection Software

Post by ProjeARGE » Fri Apr 14, 2006 12:41 am

Hi all,

I want to build up a thermal motion detection software. I have a thermal camera with SMA analog video output.

Lets us say I have already have a anolog to digital converter now I want to obtain information about which port (USB or RS232) is most suitable to input digital signal to be processed.

One more question, I have VB, C/C++ background but I haven' t coded this kind of software before.. So is there anyone who can tell me tips and tricks of this task.??

I can imagine general working headline such as comparing sequential frames to detect any difference and a treshold value is gonne be useful when preventing false alarms.

any help or redirects may be useful at this phase...

DirectX 8.1 has the samples AMCAP17.exe and VIDCAP. One of them works great. It puts each frame in a buffer that you can work with. If you haven’t used Microsoft DirectX, you are in for a lot of reading but it is worth it. I have mostly used the 3-D.
