Raspberry Pi LESSON 46: Calculating Frames Per Second (FPS) In OpenCV and Overlay on FrameVote
Announcing the Most Awesome Raspberry Pi Lessons of All Times! This time we RUMBLE!
In this class series, we will be using the most excellent Sunfounder Ultimate Raspberry Pi kit, available here: (Affiliate Link)
or for our UK friends, https://amzn.to/3I5d401
In this lesson I will show you how to use the Raspberry Pi camera on the Bullseye operating system, in either 32 bit or 64 bit mode. I will show you how to operate the camera using OpenCV. We will learn how to instrument the code to calculate the Frames Per Second, or FPS. We will both print the FPS and display it as an overlay on the display.
If you want to grab those cool little straight jumper wires I am using to keep my breadboard builds neat and clean you can snag a box of them here:
If you guys are interested in the oscilloscope I am using, you can pick one up here (affiliate link):
You guys get your hardware ordered so you can follow along at home!
You will also need a Raspberry Pi. I suggest the Raspberry Pi 4. If you do not already have one, this is the most suitable gear I could find:
The Raspberry Pi's are sort of pricy right now, so you can look on ebay or elsewhere to see if there are any deals. You will need a SD card. If you do not already have one, this is a good one:
I like using a wireless keyboard and mouse to have fewer wires. You can certainly use your USB keyboard and mouse, but if you want a nice wireless one, this one works on the pi. We demonstrate this by using a button switch to control a LED.
You guys can help me out over at Patreon, and that will help me keep my gear updated, and help me keep this quality content coming:

Hey, stupid guy, why you bullshittimg us with your moronic nonsense. We will not buy feom your affiliation and you and all american morons must die from starvation. All bullshit stupid american morons must die because they pollute internet with their moronic shits and lost valuable time of the non-american normal peoples.
