Blobserver ========== About ----- Blobserver is an OSC-based server aimed at detecting entities (objects / people / light / ...), in any compatible image flow. Its structure is so that it should be relatively easy to add new actuators as well as new image sources. As of yet, configuration and communication with Blobserver is done entirely through OSC messaging. Some kind of configuration file will be added soon to simplify the setup and usability, especially for permanent installations. Blobserver is built around the concept of flow. A flow is the association of a actuator and as many sources as needed for it to work correctly. At each frame, all the flows are evaluated, and the various objects detected are sent through OSC to the corresponding clients.

Authors ------- * Emmanuel Durand <email@example.com> Project URL ----------- http://code.sat.qc.ca/redmine/projects/blobserver Sponsors -------- This project is made possible thanks to the Society for Arts and Technologies. [SAT] http://www.sat.qc.ca/ Thanks to the Ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation du Québec (MDEIE). Installation ------------ Here is how to build and install it on Debian GNU/Linux or Ubuntu Precise:: sudo apt-get install help2man gettext automake bison build-essential flex libtool sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev liblo0-dev sudo apt-get install liblcms2-dev libxml2-dev libtbb-dev sudo apt-get install libshmdata-0.8 We need the latest version of OpenCV, which is not yet packaged for Ubuntu. So: cd .. git clone git://code.opencv.org/opencv.git cd opencv git checkout 2.4.6 mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DWITH_TBB=ON .. make sudo make install Then we can compile blobserver: cd ../../blobserver ./autogen.sh ./configure make sudo make install sudo ldconfig Optional installation --------------------- Some parts of blobserver are not mandatory, and you need some additional packages to build them. The following commands must be entered before the compiling of blobserver --> PCL support (for point cloud support): cd .. git clone https://github.com/PointCloudLibrary/pcl pcl cd pcl git checkout pcl-1.7.0 mkdir build cd build cmake .. make && sudo make install cd ../blobserver/ --> LibMapper support (for automatic OSC discovery): cd .. git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:libmapper/libmapper.git cd libmapper ./autogen.sh ./configure make && sudo make install cd ../blobserver/ --> Aravis support (for GiGe cameras): cd .. git clone git://git.gnome.org/aravis cd aravis ./autogen.sh make && sudo make install cd ../blobserver/ --> GLSL support (for Actuator_GLSL) cd .. git clone email@example.com:glfw/glfw.git cd glfw git checkout 3.0.3 mkdir build cd build cmake -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON .. make && sudo make install cd ../../blobserver/ Also, GLM is needed: sudo apt-get install libglm-dev
