This lab has two goals:
Your software will need to be able to grab an image from the webcam
without user input, so you should ensure that you can write a program to
do just that.
A basic example is FrameGrab.java,
which will grab an image and save it as a file (named
This uses the Java Media Framework (JMF). You'll probably need to change the string identifying the device: use
JMStudio to find out the right string.
There are lots of other ways to do this, and you're as good as
(or better than) me at finding them on the net, so you're welcome to do that.
Try to process your images as suggested by Dr. Krouglicof. He'll give some examples that you can try. If you're feeling adventurous, try modifying the example code above to do some of the algorithms that he has suggested.
