Realtime reading from a Streaming using Computer Vision

This week we’re going to extend one of our earlier posts & trying to read an entire text from streaming using computer vision. If you want to view the previous post, please click the following link.

But, before we proceed, why don’t we view the demo first?

Demo

Architecture:

Let us understand the architecture flow –

Architecture flow

The above diagram shows that the application, which uses the Open-CV, analyzes individual frames from the source & extracts the complete text within the video & displays it on top of the target screen besides prints the same in the console.

Python Packages:

pip install imutils==0.5.4
pip install matplotlib==3.5.2
pip install numpy==1.21.6
pip install opencv-contrib-python==4.6.0.66
pip install opencv-contrib-python-headless==4.6.0.66
pip install opencv-python==4.6.0.66
pip install opencv-python-headless==4.6.0.66
pip install pandas==1.3.5
pip install Pillow==9.1.1
pip install pytesseract==0.3.9
pip install python-dateutil==2.8.2

CODE:

Let us now understand the code. For this use case, we will only discuss three python scripts. However, we need more than these three. However, we have already discussed them in some of the early posts. Hence, we will skip them here.

  • clsReadingTextFromStream.py (This is the main class of python script that will extract the text from the WebCAM streaming in real-time.)

Please find the key snippet from the above script –

# Two output layer names for the text detector model

lNames = cf.conf['LAYER_DET']

# Tesseract OCR text param values

strVal = "-l " + str(cf.conf['LANG']) + " --oem " + str(cf.conf['OEM_VAL']) + " --psm " + str(cf.conf['PSM_VAL']) + ""
config = (strVal)

The first line contains the two output layers’ names for the text detector model. Among them, the first one indicates the outcome possibilities & the second one use to derive the bounding box coordinates of the predicted text.

The second line contains various options for the tesseract APIs. You need to understand the opportunities in detail to make them work. These are the essential options for our use case –

  • Language – The intended language, for example, English, Spanish, Hindi, Bengali, etc.
  • OEM flag – In this case, the application will use 4 to indicate LSTM neural net model for OCR.
  • OEM Value – In this case, the selected value is 7, indicating that the application treats the ROI as a single line of text.

For more details, please refer to the config file.

print("[INFO] Loading Text Detector...")
net = cv2.dnn.readNet(modelPath)

The above lines bring the already created model & load it to memory for evaluation.

# Setting new width and height and then determine the ratio in change
# for both the width and height
(newW, newH) = (wt, ht)
rW = origW / float(newW)
rH = origH / float(newH)

# Resize the frame and grab the new frame dimensions
frame = cv2.resize(frame, (newW, newH))
(H, W) = frame.shape[:2]

# Construct a blob from the frame and then perform a forward pass of
# the model to obtain the two output layer sets
blob = cv2.dnn.blobFromImage(frame, 1.0, (W, H), sParam, swapRB=True, crop=False)
net.setInput(blob)
(confScore, imgGeo) = net.forward(lNames)

# Decode the predictions, then apply non-maxima suppression to
# suppress weak, overlapping bounding boxes
(rects, confidences) = self.predictText(confScore, imgGeo)
boxes = non_max_suppression(np.array(rects), probs=confidences)

The above lines are more of preparing individual frames to get the bounding box by resizing the height & width followed by a forward pass of the model to obtain two output layer sets. And then apply the non-maxima suppression to remove the weak, overlapping bounding box by interpreting the prediction. In short, this will identify the potential text region & put the bounding box surrounding it.

# Initialize the list of results
res = []

# Getting BoundingBox boundaries
res = self.findBoundBox(boxes, res, rW, rH, orig, origW, origH, pad)

The above function will create the bounding box surrounding the predicted text regions. Also, we will capture the expected text inside the result variable.

for (spX, spY, epX, epY) in boxes:
  # Scale the bounding box coordinates based on the respective
  # ratios
  spX = int(spX * rW)
  spY = int(spY * rH)
  epX = int(epX * rW)
  epY = int(epY * rH)

  # To obtain a better OCR of the text we can potentially
  # apply a bit of padding surrounding the bounding box.
  # And, computing the deltas in both the x and y directions
  dX = int((epX - spX) * pad)
  dY = int((epY - spY) * pad)

  # Apply padding to each side of the bounding box, respectively
  spX = max(0, spX - dX)
  spY = max(0, spY - dY)
  epX = min(origW, epX + (dX * 2))
  epY = min(origH, epY + (dY * 2))

  # Extract the actual padded ROI
  roi = orig[spY:epY, spX:epX]

Now, the application will scale the bounding boxes based on the previously computed ratio for actual text recognition. In this process, the application also padded the bounding boxes & then extracted the padded region of interest.

# Choose the proper OCR Config
text = pytesseract.image_to_string(roi, config=config)

# Add the bounding box coordinates and OCR'd text to the list
# of results
res.append(((spX, spY, epX, epY), text))

Using OCR options, the application extracts the text within the video frame & adds that to the res list.

# Sort the results bounding box coordinates from top to bottom
res = sorted(res, key=lambda r:r[0][1])

It then sends a sorted output to the primary calling functions.

for ((spX, spY, epX, epY), text) in res:
  # Display the text OCR by using Tesseract APIs
  print("Reading Text::")
  print("=" *60)
  print(text)
  print("=" *60)

  # Removing the non-ASCII text so it can draw the text on the frame
  # using OpenCV, then draw the text and a bounding box surrounding
  # the text region of the input frame
  text = "".join([c if ord(c) < aRange else "" for c in text]).strip()
  output = orig.copy()

  cv2.rectangle(output, (spX, spY), (epX, epY), drawTag, 2)
  cv2.putText(output, text, (spX, spY - 20), cv2.FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, 1.2, drawTag, 3)

  # Show the output frame
  cv2.imshow(title, output)

Finally, it fetches the potential text region along with the text & then prints on top of the source video. Also, it removed some non-printable characters during this time to avoid any cryptic texts.

Here is the folder structure that contains all the files & directories in MAC O/S –

You will get the complete codebase in the following Github link.

Unfortunately, I cannot upload the model due to it’s size. I will share on the need basis.

I’ll bring some more exciting topic in the coming days from the Python verse. Please share & subscribe my post & let me know your feedback.

Till then, Happy Avenging! 🙂

Note: All the data & scenario posted here are representational data & scenarios & available over the internet & for educational purpose only. Some of the images (except my photo) that we’ve used are available over the net. We don’t claim the ownership of these images. There is an always room for improvement & especially the prediction quality.

Neural prophet – The enhanced version of Facebook’s forecasting API

Hi Team,

Today, I’ll be explaining the enhancement of one of the previous posts. I know that I’ve shared the fascinating API named prophet-API, which Facebook developed. One can quickly get more accurate predictions with significantly fewer data points. (If you want to know more about that post, please click on the following link.)

However, there is another enhancement on top of that API, which is more accurate. However, one needs to know – when they should consider using it. So, today, we’ll be talking about the neural prophet API.

But, before we start digging deep, why don’t we view the demo first?

Demo

Let’s visit a diagram. That way, you can understand where you can use it. Also, I’ll be sharing some of the links from the original site for better information mining.

Source: Neural Prophet (Official Site)

As one can see, this API is trying to bridge between the different groups & it enables the time-series computation efficiently.

WHERE TO USE:

Let’s visit another diagram from the same source.

Source: Neural Prophet (Official Site)

So, I hope these two pictures give you a clear picture & relatively set your expectations to more ground reality.


ARCHITECTURE:

Let us explore the architecture –

As one can see, the application is processing IoT data & creating a historical data volume, out of which the model is gradually predicting correct outcomes with higher confidence.

Some of the key snippets that I will discuss here are as follows –

## user specified events
# history events
SummerEnd = p.DataFrame(event1)
LongWeekend = p.DataFrame(event2)

dfEvents = p.concat((SummerEnd, LongWeekend))

# NeuralProphet Object
# Adding events
m = NeuralProphet(loss_func="MSE")

# set the model to expect these events
m = m.add_events(["SummerEnd", "LongWeekend"])

# create the data df with events
historyDf = m.create_df_with_events(df, dfEvents)

Creating & adding events into your model will allow it to predict based on the milestones.

# fit the model
metrics = m.fit(historyDf, freq="D")

# forecast with events known ahead
futureDf = m.make_future_dataframe(df=historyDf, events_df=dfEvents, periods=365, n_historic_predictions=len(df))
forecastDf = m.predict(df=futureDf)

events = forecastDf[(forecastDf['event_SummerEnd'].abs() + forecastDf['event_LongWeekend'].abs()) > 0]
events.tail()

## plotting forecasts
fig = m.plot(forecastDf)

## plotting components
figComp = m.plot_components(forecastDf)

## plotting parameters
figParam = m.plot_parameters()

Based on the daily/monthly collected data, our algorithm tries to plot the data points & predict a future trend, which will look like this –

Future Data Points

From the above diagram, we can conclude that the CPU’s trend has been growing day by day since the beginning. However, there are some events when we can see a momentary drop in requirements due to the climate & holidays. During those times, either people are not using them or are not at home.

Apart from that, I’ve demonstrated the use of a benchwork framework, & splitting the data into Train, Test & Validation & captured the RMSE values. I would request you to go through that & post any questions if you have any.

You can witness the train & validation datasets & visualize them in the standard manner, which will look something like –

Real-Time Matplotlib view from a streaming data built using Python & Kivy-based iOS App

Today, I’ll be sharing one of the most exciting posts I’ve ever shared. This post is rare as you cannot find the most relevant working solution easily over the net.

So, what are we talking about here? We’re going to build a Python-based iOS App using the Kivy framework. You get plenty of videos & documents on this as well. However, nowhere you’ll find the capability that I’m about to disclose. We’ll consume live IoT streaming data from a dummy application & then plot them in a MatplotLib dashboard inside the mobile App. And that’s where this post is seriously different from the rest of the available white papers.


But, before we dig into more details, let us see a quick demo of our iOS App.

Demo:

Demo

Isn’t it exciting? Great! Now, let’s dig into the details.


Let’s understand the architecture as to how we want to proceed with the solution here.

Architecture:

Broad-level design

The above diagram shows that the Kive-based iOS application that will consume streaming data from the Ably queue. The initial dummy IoT application will push the real-time events to the same Ably queue.

So, now we understand the architecture. Fantastic!

Let’s deep dive into the code that we specifically built for this use case.

Let’s explore the key snippets from the above script.

# Initiating Ably class to push events
x1 = cps.clsPublishStream()

The I-OS App is calling the main class to publish the JSON events to Ably Queue.

if cnt == 1:
    srcJsonMast = '{' + '"' + str(idx) + '":'+ tmpJson
elif cnt == msgSize:
    srcJsonMast = srcJsonMast + '}'
    print('JSON: ')
    print(str(srcJsonMast))

    # Pushing both the Historical Confirmed Cases
    retVal_1 = x1.pushEvents(srcJsonMast, debugInd, var)

    if retVal_1 == 0:
        print('Successfully IoT event pushed!')
    else:
        print('Failed to push IoT events!')

    srcJsonMast = ''
    tmpJson = ''
    cnt = 0
    idx = -1
    srcJson = {}
    retVal_1 = 0
else:
    srcJsonMast = srcJsonMast + ',' + '"' + str(idx) + '":'+ tmpJson

In the above snippet, we’re forming the payload dynamically & then calling the “pushEvents” to push all the random generated IoT mock-events to the Ably queue.

To understand this, one needs to learn how to prepare a Kivy design layout using the KV-language. You can develop the same using native-python code as well. However, I wanted to explore this language & not to mention that this is the preferred way of doing a front-end GUI design in Kivy.

Like any graphical interface, one needs to understand the layouts & the widgets that you are planning to use or build. For that, please go through the following critical documentation link on Kivy Layouts. Please go through this if you are doing this for the first time.

To pinpoint the conversation, I would like to present the documentation segment from the official site in the given picture –

Official Kivy-refernce

Since we’ve used our custom buttons & top bars, the most convenient GUI layouts will be FloatLayout for our use case. By using that layout, we can conveniently position our widgets at any random place as per our needs. At the same time, one can use nested layouts by combining different types of arrangements under another.

Some of the key lines from the above scripting files will be –

          Label:
              text: "This is an application, which will consume the live streaming data inside a Kivy-based IOS-App by using Matplotlib to capture the KPIs."
              text_size: self.width + 350, None

Let us understand the custom buttons mapped in our Apps.

So, these are custom buttons. We placed them into specific positions & sizes by mentioning the appropriate size & position coordinates & then assigned the button methods (on_press & on_release).

However, these button methods will be present inside the main python script, which we’ll discuss after this segment.

Let us explore the main script now.

def getRealTimeIoT():
    try:
        # Let's pass this to our map section
        df = x1.conStream(var1, DInd)

        print('Data:')
        print(str(df))

        return df
    except Exception as e:
        x = str(e)
        print(x)

        df = p.DataFrame()

        return df

The above function will invoke the streaming class to consume the mock IoT live events as a pandas dataframe from the Ably queue.

class MainInterface(FloatLayout):

    def __init__(self, **kwargs):
        super().__init__(**kwargs)
        self.data = getRealTimeIoT()
        self.likes = 0
        self.dcMotor = 0
        self.servoMotor = 0
        self.minRatio = 0
        plt.subplots_adjust(bottom=0.19)

        #self.fig, self.ax = plt.subplots(1,1, figsize=(6.5,10))
        self.fig, self.ax = plt.subplots()
        self.mpl_canvas = self.fig.canvas

Application is instantiating the main class & assignments of all the critical variables, including the matplotlib class.

    def pressed(self, instance, inText, SM):

        if str(inText).upper() == 'START':
            instance.parent.ids.s_img.source = Curr_Path + sep + 'Background' + sep + "Pressed_Start_Btn.png"
            print('In Pressed: ', str(instance.parent.ids.s_img.text).upper())
            if ((SM.current == "background_2") or (SM.current == "background_3")):
                SM.transition.direction = "right"
            SM.current= "background_1"
            Clock.unschedule(self.update)
            self.remove_widget(self.mpl_canvas)

We’ve taken one of the button events & captured how the application will behave once someone clicks the Start button & how it will bring all the corresponding elements of a static page. It also explained the transition type between screens.

        elif str(inText).upper() == 'STATS':

            instance.parent.ids.st_img.source = Curr_Path + sep + 'Background' + sep + "Pressed_Stats_Btn.png"
            print('In Pressed: ', str(instance.parent.ids.st_img.text).upper())
            if (SM.current == "background_1"):
                SM.transition.direction = "left"
            elif (SM.current == "background_3"):
                SM.transition.direction = "right"
            SM.current= "background_2"
            Clock.schedule_interval(self.update, 0.1)

The next screen invokes the dynamic & real-time content. So, please pay extra attention to the following line –

Clock.schedule_interval(self.update, 0.1)

This line will invoke the update function, which looks like –

    def update(self, *args):
        self.data = self.on_data(self.data)

Here is the logic for the update function, which will invoke another function named – “on_data“.

    def on_data(self, *args):
        self.ax.clear()
        self.data = getRealTimeIoT()

        self.ids.lk_img_1.source = Curr_Path + sep + 'Background' + sep + "Likes_Btn.png"
        self.likes = self.getMaxLike(self.data)
        self.ids.dynVal.text = str(self.likes)
        self.ids.lk_img_1.source = ''
        self.ids.lk_img_1.source = Curr_Path + sep + 'Background' + sep + "Likes_Btn_R.png"

        self.dcMotor = self.getMaxDCMotor(self.data)
        self.ids.dynDC.text = str(self.dcMotor)

        self.servoMotor = self.getMaxServoMotor(self.data)
        self.ids.dynServo.text = str(self.servoMotor)

        self.minRatio = self.getDc2ServoMinRatio(self.data)
        self.ids.dynMin.text = str(self.minRatio)

        x = self.data['x_value']
        y1 = self.data['total_1']
        y2 = self.data['total_2']

        self.ax.plot(x, y1, label='Channel 1', linewidth=5.0)
        self.ax.plot(x, y2, label='Channel 2', linewidth=5.0)

        self.mpl_canvas.draw_idle()

        box = self.ids.box
        box.clear_widgets()
        box.add_widget(self.mpl_canvas)

        return self.data

The above crucial line shows how we capture the live calculation & assign them into matplotlib plots & finally assign that figure canvas of matplotlib to a box widget as per our size & display the change content whenever it invokes this method.

Rests of the functions are pretty self-explanatory. So, I’m not going to discuss them.


Run:

Let’s run the app & see the output –

STEP – 1

Triggering the mock IoT App

STEP – 2

Triggering the iOS App

STEP – 3


So, we’ve done it.

You will get the complete codebase in the following Github link.

I’ll bring some more exciting topic in the coming days from the Python verse. Please share & subscribe my post & let me know your feedback.

Till then, Happy Avenging!


Note: All the data & scenario posted here are representational data & scenarios & available over the internet & for educational purpose only. Some of the images (except my photo) that we’ve used are available over the net. We don’t claim the ownership of these images. There is an always room for improvement & especially all the GUI components size & position that will be dynamic in nature by defining self.width along with some constant values.

Projecting real-time KPIs by ingesting streaming events from emulated IoT-device

Today, I am planning to demonstrate an IoT use case implemented in Python. I was waiting for my Raspberry Pi to arrive. However, the product that I received was not working as expected. Perhaps, some hardware malfunction. Hence, I was looking for a way to continue with my installment even without the hardware.

I was looking for an alternative way to use an online Raspberry Pi emulator. Recently, Microsoft has introduced integrated Raspberry Pi, which you can directly integrate with Azure IoT. However, I couldn’t find any API, which I could leverage on my Python application.

So, I explored all the possible options & finally come-up with the idea of creating my own IoT-Emulator, which can integrate with any application. With the help from the online materials, I have customized & enhanced them as per my use case & finally come up with this clean application that will demonstrate this use case with clarity.

We’ll showcase this real-time use case, where we would try to capture the events generated by IoT in a real-time dashboard, where the values in the visual display points will be affected as soon as the source data changes.


However, I would like to share the run before we dig deep into this.

Demo

Isn’t this exciting? How we can use our custom-built IoT emulator & captures real-time events to Ably Queue, then transform those raw events into more meaningful KPIs. Let’s deep dive then.


Architecture:

Let’s explore the architecture –

Fig – 1

As you can see, the green box is a demo IoT application that generates events & pushes them into the Ably Queue. At the same time, Dashboard consumes the events & transforms them into more meaningful metrics.


Package Installation:

Let us understand the sample packages that require for this task.

Step – 1:

Installation

Step – 2:

Installation – Continue

And, here is the command to install those packages –

pip install dash==1.0.0
pip install numpy==1.16.4
pip install pandas==0.24.2
pip install scipy==1.3.0
pip install gunicorn==19.9.0
pip install ably==1.1.1
pip install tkgpio==0.1

Code:

Since this is an extension to our previous post, we’re not going to discuss other scripts, which we’ve already discussed over there. Instead, we will talk about the enhanced scripts & the new scripts that require for this use case.

1. clsConfig.py (This native Python script contains the configuration entries.)

Key snippets from the above script –

config = self.config
circuit = TkCircuit(config)
circuit.run(main_function)

The above lines will create an instance of simulated IoT circuits & then it will use the json file to start the GUI class.

sleep(0.05)

Lets’ explore the key snippets –

ledAlert = PWMLED(21)
dcMotor = Motor(22, 23)
servoMotor = Servo(24)

It defines three motors that include Servo, DC & LED.

Now, we can see the following sets of the critical snippet –

ledAlert.value = ioMeter1.value

if switch.is_pressed:
    dcMotor.forward(ioMeter2.value)
    xVal = 'Motor Forward'
else:
    dcMotor.backward(ioMeter2.value)
    xVal = 'Motor Backward'

servoMotor.value = 1 - 2 * ioMeter3.value

srcJson = {
"LedMeter": ledAlert.value,
"DCMeter": ioMeter2.value,
"ServoMeter": ioMeter3.value,
"SwitchStatus": switch.is_pressed,
"DCMotorPos": xVal,
"ServoMotor": servoMotor.value
}

Following lines will dynamically generates JSON that will be passed into the Ably queue –

tmpJson = str(srcJson)

if cnt == 1:
    srcJsonMast = '{' + '"' + str(idx) + '":'+ tmpJson
elif cnt == msgSize:
    srcJsonMast = srcJsonMast + '}'
    print('JSON: ')
    print(str(srcJsonMast))

Final line from the above script –

# Pushing both the Historical Confirmed Cases
retVal_1 = x1.pushEvents(srcJsonMast, debugInd, var)

This code will now push the events into the Ably Queue.

The following line creates two panels, where the application will consume the streaming data by the app’s call-back feature & refresh the data & graphs as & when the application receives the streaming data.

A similar approach was adopted for other vital aspects/components inside the dashboard.

Capturing all the relevant columns & transform them into a graph, where the application will consume data into both the axis (x-axis & y-axis).

There are many other useful snippets, which creates separate useful widgets inside the dashboard.


Run:

Let us run the application –

Dashboard-View

So, we’ve done it.

You will get the complete codebase in the following Github link.

There is an excellent resource from the dash framework, which you should explore. The following link would be handy for developers who want to get some meaningful pre-built dashboard template, which you can customize as per your need through Python or R. Please find the link here.


I’ll bring some more exciting topic in the coming days from the Python verse.

Till then, Happy Avenging! 😀


Note: All the data & scenario posted here are representational data & scenarios & available over the internet & for educational purpose only.

One more thing you need to understand is that this prediction based on limited data points. The actual event may happen differently. Ideally, countries are taking a cue from this kind of analysis & are initiating appropriate measures to avoid the high-curve. And, that is one of the main objective of time series analysis.

There is always a room for improvement of this kind of models & the solution associated with it. I’ve shown the basic ways to achieve the same for the education purpose only.
