This is part of the technical preparation for the Master of Data Science for Public Policy programme at the Hertie School and is also open for the general public.
Introduction to Python Programming and Developi...
The course starts with some fairly simple introductions to HTML and CSS and what each programming language is used for when it comes to web design. Later on, it delves into more advanced techniques and concepts, such as UI design and optimization.
Finally, a web page was developed to access the text extracted from the pictures taken by the camera over a network. Web programming was done using the Hyper-text Markup Language (HTML) on the python IDE. An IP address 0.0.0.0/5000 was used on the network of the web page. The web page can be accessed by anyone on the same network as the Raspberry Pi. The diagram below shows a sample of the text from the designed web page.
In this work, a highly efficient, economical, and VRPN system was developed. This system uses smart IR sensor to detect moving objects, camera to capture the image, extract the text from the image, and save the text on a web page. The major component selected to do the main work in the system is the Raspberry Pi. OpenCV was used together with python programming, for the character segmentation and recognition. This was configured on the Raspberry Pi, including the required library that is required to make the hardware components of the system to work with the Raspberry Pi. As shown in the results, the developed system was able to deliver a clear and readable text on a web page which can be used to query a database. Due to the calibration of the IR sensor, it is able to detect fast-moving cars and also able to log different cars at different times using a tag for each data it receives and having a unique saving sequence. The system is by far one of the cheapest means for the actualization of traffic management in a smart city.
