Hello My name is Anant I am Gsoc 2018 aspirant. I am interested in the project real time peak focusing. I have some knowledge on VHDL and doing a steep learning of image processing. I am new to this, please tell how should I follow I wen
08:36
Bertl_oO
welcome Anant!
08:37
Bertl_oO
you already managed the first step by showing up here :)
08:37
Bertl_oO
you also want to do the VHDL challenge
08:37
Anant
I went through some papers and same to know that CMOS camera sensor is being used. My task in vhdl would be
08:38
Anant
To implement line buffer that carries image data right?
08:38
tushar1997
left the channel
08:39
Bertl_oO
yes, line buffer, a kernel to detect the gradient and some logic to make the peaking visible
08:40
Anant
So should I use peak detection algorithm to detect peaks...?
08:41
Bertl_oO
yes?
08:42
Anant
And about the sobel pipeline, does that means to detect edges through sobel edge detection
08:43
Bertl_oO
that is the idea, if you have a better one, no problem

Bertl_oO
most likely you are correct :)
08:56
Anant
Please tell me from where to start learning it's implementation I have already started looking into the qualification task
08:57
Bertl_oO
well, there are a bunch of good VHDL 'courses' online
08:57
Bertl_oO
also check the coding style used in the existing AXIOM Beta VHDL codebase
08:59
Bertl_oO
for the image processing part I wouldn't worry too much right now, that is something we will discuss in detail during GSoC
08:59

Hello! I am an Informatics Engineering student which heard about GSoC yesterday and I saw on the list Apertus. Due to my interests in image/video related programming and making films as a hobby, I loved your project! I wanted to start here to have a general idea about what to do first and how to do it, and to ask some questions.
21:29
Bertl_oO
welcome! and ask away!
21:30
TofuLynx
Thank you :) My strengths are mainly C++ and I think that's where I am more suited to collaborate, and I saw the C++ challenge and the C++ related ideas (T720, T763 and T722)
21:32
TofuLynx
I think my approach should be reading the related documentations about AXIOM Beta, the Collected Information
21:33
Bertl_oO
that's a good start, yes
21:33
TofuLynx
Was there some thing like AXIOM alpha? or other project?
21:33
Bertl_oO
also it's good that you found your way here and hanging around here might be beneficial as well
21:33
Bertl_oO
yes, the AXIOM Alpha was the proof of concept prototype we did
21:34
TofuLynx
I am happy I am off to a good start
21:35
TofuLynx
And was the proof of concept before or after you were kickstarted?
21:35
Bertl_oO
before
21:35
Bertl_oO
and it was actually indiegogo
21:36
TofuLynx
Oh I see
21:37
TofuLynx
That's a great accomplishment!
21:37
TofuLynx
and AXIOM Beta is based on arch linux
21:37
TofuLynx
is it important that its software use low level instructions?
21:38
Bertl_oO
hmm?
21:38
TofuLynx
I mean, processor specific code
21:39
Bertl_oO
you mean native code or what's the question here?
21:40
TofuLynx
for example, SIMD
21:40
Bertl_oO
ah, we don't currently use the NEON instructions
21:41
Bertl_oO
the ARM cores are mostly used for simple tasks like configuration and control
21:41
TofuLynx
control, like, image previewing and stuff?
21:42
Bertl_oO
mostly adjusting (sensor) registers and similar
21:42
TofuLynx
I see, and where does image processing occurs?
21:43
Bertl_oO
the image pipeline is implemented in the FPGA
21:45
TofuLynx
Thanks for the information! I am going to read about the ideas and the challenge
21:47
Bertl_oO
you're welcome!
22:05
TofuLynx
How many hours of continuous filming is a single AXIOM's battery expected to take?
22:06
Bertl_oO
depends on the battery :)
22:06
TofuLynx
Ah xD
22:07
TofuLynx
But isn't there any reference or something regarding this topic?
22:07
TofuLynx
like a duration with a specified battery
22:07
Bertl_oO
not yet
22:11
TofuLynx
Are there any special programming practices related to the development board?
22:12
Bertl_oO
like?
22:13
TofuLynx
well, just making sure if there arent some advises related with it
22:17
Bertl_oO
nothing special

TofuLynx
"Bonus points if you use an existing debayering method to recover a color image.", what do you mean by existing? Already used before in anything, not related to apertus?
22:19
Bertl_oO
any good debayering will do :)
22:47
TofuLynx
the debayering process should be programmed by me or is it preferable to use some foss library?
22:51
BAndiT1983
usually by you, to show us that you understand the stuff
22:51
TofuLynx
Yeah I see
22:51
BAndiT1983
it can be asimple one which interpolates between 2 or 4 values, depends on the case
22:52
TofuLynx
but I could use a more advanced one with pattern recognizing and stuff?
22:52
TofuLynx
or is it overkill?
22:53
BAndiT1983
it is not the goal of the challenge
22:53
TofuLynx
Ok I see
22:53
BAndiT1983
the challenge is to see if candidates for gsoc can develop an application up to the task
22:54
TofuLynx
Ok Ok
22:54
BAndiT1983
no fancy stuff should be done, just plain and simple conversion from 12 bit stream and output of the image, possibly in colour, but liniearizing not required
22:54
TofuLynx
what do you mean by liniearizing?
22:56
BAndiT1983
usually raw images have to be upscaled in the color range from 12 bit to 16 bit, it depends on the colorspace they were shoot in, but this stuff is too advanced for now
22:58
TofuLynx
so, for example, if the raw image green pixel has a value of 4096 (2^12), it should be 65536 in the final image?
22:58
Bertl_oO
off to bed now ... have a good one everyone!

TofuLynx
Good Night!
23:01
BAndiT1983
a sort of, there are several methods, and one should be aware of clipping if the values rise too high
23:01
TofuLynx
Ok! :)

https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/72505/what-does-linearization-mean-in-raw-processing
23:05
TofuLynx
I am understanding it now! makes sense
23:05
TofuLynx
how do I measure the sensor response?
23:06
BAndiT1983
can't answer on the fly, my knowledge of that stuff is also not that deep
23:07
TofuLynx
Thanks!
23:07
BAndiT1983
off for today
23:07
TofuLynx
See you next time!
