Want to get this idea off the ground?
We'll launch a landing page for the idea, and then email 100 prospective customers in the industry.
Then we'll send you the results!
This looks very promising. If my assumption is right, you have only few versions of the registration papers, so you create few templates for opencv, connect it with nodejs + socketio and vuala, officer takes photo, it gets send to backend, python will take out all the information needed, saves to db, node fills up paperwork and send it back to officer. And if there's some kind of db where you can match the bar code to persons information, it's even easier. Where can i sign up for this? :Dreply
Hi apprryx! While the individual who posted this didn't seem too keen on working on the problem, I definitely think this is worth exploring. I think there are a slew of unsolved problems in law enforcement. I'll upvote this Opp and if it gets to the top I'll reach out to some officers to validate!reply
We actually had this product under development for our city police department. We have a demo version, but development has been on hold recently. I'll throw in at least one data point that validates this need :-). If anyone is interested in seeing the product in action (it was a mobile app), we might be able to set up a demo. I'm new to OppsList, so I'm not sure of the best way to interact. I'll have some material collected and put on a public site. -CJreply
Python with opencv lib to "process" the images. It seemed to me that it would be better for this task, node has opencv "wrapper" which IMHO takes more resources. It could be entirely writen in nodejs, but i would like to test if it would be efficient enough, performance wise. The best solution would be ofcourse to use C/C++ for the image processing, but it depends on how much data we want it to process.reply
