[Part 2] Automation of Home Appliances using Raspberry Pi – Implementation of Hand Gesture Recognition
In this blog, we intend to develop an application that is built on RASBERRY PI using java and computer vision APIs. It will detect the hand gesture and consequently pass the signals to IR device which will then perform appropriate home automation. OpenCV and JavaCV are the core part of computer vision APIs. IR device is used as a base for communication between the two.
Xamarin- The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Xamarin aims to be the framework that can cover all major mobile platforms- iOS, Android and Windows without compromising on quality and performance as expected from native apps development. Well known mature .NET framework libraries are available on Android and iOS platforms as well. The rich features of these libraries give an added advantage to Xamarin considering the developer view point.
