Operating System: Linux
Installation for measurenoise:
Get the colorconversion routines from:
build them and copy ccvt.h and libccvt.a to the measurenoise source-directory. Then:
Do not use the average noise threshold directly: measure it for both dark and light situation and pick the highest value. Then, add 1 or2. Furthermore: first set your device to the same parameters you use in the package with which you use this noise-threshold. E.g.: framerate,
width, height, etc. Also very important is that you point the webcam to something static: there should not be anything moving! For that, you can use dov4l: http://www.vanheusden.com/dov4l/
