This week we put all of our effort into setting up a server for all of our API fetches, and eventually to take care of the image processing algorithm. We were able to set this up while still maintaining compatibility with the app. From here, we are going to improve the security of it by implementing encryption and authentication.
We have also begun work on developing the image processing algorithm. We are using some existing Python libraries to do so. So far, we have been able to detect edges in the radar images and ignore most of the unnecessary details. Our next plans are to implement a way of finding the centers of some of these clusters, and to calculate the distances traveled from one radar image to the next. This will give us some basic radar processing, and from there we can tweak the parameters and continue to improve its efficacy.
