There are countless practical applications of Image Recognition technology, but for every helpful use, there are plenty of “just because” utilizations of ComputerVision. One such example comes from Studio Diip, a Dutch company that has worked on projects ranging from vegetable recognition to automated card recognition, and which has used technology to allow fish in a tank to navigate a vehicle.
How does it work? In short, a camera positioned on the fish watches it swimming in its tank, analyzes this movement to determine the direction it is going, and then directs a car (mounted to the tank) to head in that direction. It’s not much of a scientific breakthrough, but it’s a fun idea.
How might this technology be applied in other ways? In what way can ComputerVision help improve your product?
