Here's a small demo video (also available as 15.5 MByte DivX3 video and available on Youtube) where I use my new Ruby extension to send instructions to a Robobuilder Huno. The software is available on the MMVLWiki.

I've released a Microsoft Windows version of the Ruby real-time computer vision library HornetsEye. Now HornetsEye not only runs under GNU/Linux but under Microsoft Windows as well! Currently Hornetseye for Windows is pretty basic since it does not have Video-I/O and cannot yet display images without the help of Qt4. If you are still interested you can already download a big package with installers for Ruby, HornetsEye, Qt4, and a lot more. See installation instructions for more information.

I have tried to create a software tool which makes implementing computer vision algorithms easy. You can even process images using the interactive Ruby shell. Under GNU/Linux it is already possible to write more sophisticated software such as a Webcam viewer on top of HornetsEye.


I've dropped developing the graphical programming approach with Qt-designer. Instead I've started developing the Ruby real-time computer vision library HornetsEye. The approach of writing an extension to Ruby has so far gone quite well and it looks like I'm going to stay with this approach.

Version 0.2 of the Mimas computer vision plugin for Qt-designer was released. It is still relying on an unstable release of the real-time computer vision library Mimas. The new version allows to interactively use Gnuplot within Qt-designer. Here is a screenshot of the Gnuplot-plugin for Qt-designer.
