MO Faruque Sarker: Handling very large images using VIPS

  • A second year PhD student at U of Wales, Newport under Robotic Intelligence Lab (my homepage at: http://ril.newport.ac.uk/sarker/index.php).
  • Coding Platform: Ubuntu 8.10 x64, Pentium 4 3GHz, 32GB RAM
  • I'm interested to work in processing large images in Hugin. We have got a 16 mega-pixel Prosilica GE4900C CCD camera for tracking about 30 mobile robots. It gives about 50MB image file per frame using a huge memory. I'm running my tracking algorithm on Ubuntu 8.10 x64 and got some nice results of tracking markers (http://ril.newport.ac.uk/sarker/index.php?pid=21).
