Installation Instructions

Give step by step instructions on how to install your project on the SPEd2 image.

  • First clone our github repository: []
git clone 
  • Install python-opencv
 $ opkg install python-opencv 
  • You will also need a webcam and a way to mount it. We used a Sony Playstation Eye, but any webcam with at least 640x480 resolution should work. Our mount held the camera about 7 inches above the playing surface, and had it pointing straight down.

User Instructions

Once everything is installed, how do you use the program? Give details here, so if you have a long user manual, link to it here.


Here is where you brag about what your project can do.

Consider including a YouTube demo.

Theory of Operation

Give a high level overview of the structure of your software. Are you using GStreamer? Show a diagram of the pipeline. Are you running multiple tasks? Show what they do and how they interact.

Work Breakdown

List the major tasks in your project and who did what.

Also list here what doesn't work yet and when you think it will be finished and who is finishing it.


Give some concluding thoughts about the project. Suggest some future additions that could make it even more interesting.
