This summer Steve has made a shell of the app with basic OpenCV functionality and a "dumb" resistance calculator(choose colors from a drop-down menu). So far, we have struggled to make OpenCV perform basic tasks in Android. Recently though, we have had a breakthrough in being able to run example OpenCV code inside of our app.
Joshua has been focusing more on learning OpenCV in C++ that is easily ported to Android. He has been experimenting with the idea of Cascading Classifiers and should be able to find a resistor in the window in fairly short time. It should be pointed out that this project is only one of the projects that each of the developers is working on. This means that Steve and Josh trade off on who is working on it each week.
