I'm currently doing my final year Degree in computing studies.
The project I'm working on is a video of a webcam or computer webcam to have 2 pre-defined ROI (Region of Interest) on top and bottom of the video. It is to detect a person when he does a simple push up whether he reaches the area of both top and bottom ROI by detecting the person's head when he enters the ROI. I totally have very less experience in programming and really need guide and help.
During my research I've come across a journal/research at: Pattern Recognition Letters 33 (2012) 438–445. I've downloaded and gone thru it but can't seem to find its code or truly understand it. I got access with my University account at sciencedirect.com.
2nd idea I had was after viewing a video in Youtube: Traffic Counting based on OpenCV... I was very interested by that video. I was thinking if I could set 2 lines like he did and detect simple human motion up and down doing a simple accurate pushup exercise I would be so much happy but I can't seem to get contact or ask for any information.
I really need advice and help because I am really lost.
