‘Open Data Cam’ is a tool that helps to quantify the world. With computer vision ‘Open Data Cam’ understands and quantifies what it sees. The simple DIY setup allows everybody to become an urban data miner.
‘Open Data Cam’ runs on a NVIDIA Jetson TX2 GPU Board and other off-the-shelf equipment (~500$). All software is based on open source components and runs completely locally. The current setup is optimized for a “smart traffic cam” setup (detecting & counting traffic participants) but other use cases are possible via the API too. The project follows the “release early” philosophy and should be considered as an alpha release.
