For a few years now, the neuroscience students at CU Anschutz host a brain awareness week event at the Denver Museum of Science. Though the theme is different every year, this year we focused on sensory systems of different animals. Here, I will describe snakeSnap, a project Andrew Scallon and I built to (roughly) demonstrate snake vision.
First, update your raspberry pi and install all the dependencies.
As you can probably tell, you have to know a bit of programming and be relatively comfortable with the command line to use this program. There are also a lot of heavy dependencies for the image processing (matplotlib) and some legacy python code in there (pylepton). I am working on lightening up the dependencies, and porting pylepton to python 3. making this a Flask application and hopefully an executable so that you can just run it without writing any code.
