So, I just started what will hopefully be my final quarter at graduate school. I've finally picked a project, waiting to talk to my advisor so he can approve it but I'm sure it's a done deal. I'm going to develop a dynamic steadying algorithm for handheld cameras. It lets me put together my classwork on computer vision (structure from motion), robotic vision, parameter estimation, image processing. Feels like a winner.
I already have some data collected of different subjects filling a test pattern, and I plan to capture some video from Blair Witch Project to run the algorithm through as a "real world" scenario.
9 weeks left in the quarter, meaning maybe 7 in which to do this project. Crunch time.
