The ultimate goal of
Rvision is to provide
R users with all the necessary functions to read and manipulate images, videos and camera streams, with an emphasis on speed (thanks to
OpenCV). In this respect, it is different from all the other image manipulations packages for
R that either can not quickly and directly access frames from videos or camera streams or are limited in their processing speed and/or volume.
You certainly can, but ask yourself first whether you should…
Be careful, this will trigger the explosion of your camera if it detects that you are making a duck face ;-)
