Hello, hope you are safe during the current pandemic.
I am writing this mail to express in my interest in the project idea for GSoC 2020 proposed by JdeRobot on developing computer vision exercises using OpenCV library over ROS framework. I have substantial experience working with Python and OpenCV as well as intermediate experience with ROS. For reference, you can view my Github profile at https://github.com/ShantamShorewala
For the project, I will be preparing a detailed proposal for submission which I aim to complete by the end of this week in order to share with you. In a rudimentary sense, I propose to plan computer vision exercises around the following topics:
1. Different segmentation techniques (color, shape) in various colorspaces such as RGB, HSV, LAB, etc.
2. Feature detection and object tracking across frames using these features (in-built feature detectors such as SURF, SIFT, ORB, etc). For object detection, I suggest both integrated techniques like optical flow, matching as well as others like Kalman filters.
3. Object pose estimation using PnP.
4. Contours and their properties, edge detectors.
I would appreciate any feedback on the above mentioned. If you have any other suggestions, I look forward to hearing them.
P.S. I completed by bachelor's last summer (2019). I have applied for graduate programs for this Fall and I hope to hear from some of them before the proposal submission deadline (29th March). I felt I should let you know about the same.
