Currently I am working on a computer vision project where we want to gather data from a composite material production environment.
What I learned so far that my lighting is not good. It's coming from a fluorescent lamp from that's right above the camera. Apparently I would have to diffuse the light with some sort of material. The reflections of the light are not doing us well.
The red and blue tape was placed there as a test to see if I can segment the image, remove the rest of the image outside of the tape. So that way I can analyse the area inside the tape. I got that working by converting the image to 8 bit and drawing a thick black line and then make a bounding box around that. But with the tape it's not working, presumably due to the reflection. The best outcome would be that the tape is recognized as somewhere between values 0-10.
Basically what I did here:
How can I recreate this in the first image I showed?
