Holy moly wow korrelan, you got a lab? Haha ur so cool. Nice to see some real life/part of you. And good works.

I like this a lot. When I have collected enough data I would like to do something similar.

Don't know if you have seen this project, but there are some interesting visualisations here to play with :

This was my "month off" as it were, so I don't have a ton of progress to report, but I played around with/improved the algorithm that draws the semantic net visualizations. In the process I generated a lot of variants that I think are fun to look at.  (I'm putting a selection here; if you like them, there are more on the blog): http://writerofminds.blogspot.com/2017/06/acuitas-diary-3-june-2017.html

 Once a object has been figured out at high detail, It then can be tract in very low
detail mode. Only need to bring it into
high detail when you focus on it. It become your RO!, region of interest. 

 But then need to learn what  a low resolution object will look like. It will be a simpler
outline and more memory.

 When a person enters a room, they look at blurs and can tell what they will transform
into when they are focused on.

 Since low resolution object  and the outline of low resolution object can be confused
with other objects. A AGI uses this a cornerstone of its logic of substitution.

I used to have a really antiquated control system but have recently found a much easier, neater method.

The stereo cameras are out of HD 3D gimbal domes.  I’m using passive baluns to convert the composite video signals to digital so I can pass them through a single cat5 cable, then baluns again to convert back at the DVR end.

The main gimbal is a HD PTZ camera minus the housing using the Pelco D protocols.

The 3D gimbals on the stereo cameras make it easy to adjust and calibrate the alignments for stereo overlap, etc.  They give a wide stereo view with a 30% overlap, the center HD cam has a X30 zoom lens, this provides long range and in combination with the other cams as periphery a high def fovea. 

I’ve tried moving the X,Y axis of the stereo cameras with a servos but they were a bug*er to keep aligned, so now I’ve opted for fixed cameras and just move the ‘head’.

I run the cameras through a 16 Cam HD DVR with a built in 485 PTZ controller, that came with a full SDK for windows, so I can easily get live feeds and control the PTZ motors across my network/ web. 

Made it really easy to control the motors and integrate the camera feeds into my AGI.



I also acquired a simple security 485 PTZ joystick controller for testing purposes, you can see it in this image.

The best possible upgrade that you could make would be to ditch Windows and use Linux.

Although I've primarily been using Linux for decades I have had several systems which were configured for dual booting Linux and Windows, so I've had ample opportunity to compare the two operating systems running side by side on several different high-performance systems. The difference in performance isn't just a little bit, it's staggering. Windows is so bad that running it (any version) should be a crime.

I'm working on something comparable at the moment too. I'm trying to build a drone that uses stereo vision. I've just acquired a pair of Runcam2 HD cameras but haven't decided on a gimbal mechanism yet. Can you provide more details about the gear that you are using?

 How many CPU in your computer?

 If you have 8 cpu's then you can generate 16 threads. 
  That is have a program split to 16 sub parts and each sub routine is running at 2.6 giga Hz.
 Just by adding special instructions to your program.
 That is running 16 program at the same time or cut you program up into 16 parts
and have a cpu put 2.6 gHz of power on it.
 Your program could handle 16 outline or objects at a time. Or you could split your
1000 x 1000 image into 16 parts and have a cpu focusing on each 4 x 4 section.
 That is 16 time speed up. 
 If you use c or c++ that is another 100 x speed up.

That's a decent machine so no...

A faster base processor clock speed... say 4Ghz might help a bit... but not much. 

You could run some benchmark tests on your system to make sure its running optimally and that no software/ malware is slowing it down generally.

The is also a finite execution speed for any program code of course, you might just be asking to much of a single multi-core computer,

I would suggest it's probably the language you are coding in or the routines themselves running slow.  Did you profile the code as we suggested?

Gave my bot a serious optics/ camera upgrade today. 

Got rid of the stereo SD web cams and replaced with a matched pair of true HD cams on 3D gimbals.

Upgraded the software etc, to handle the HD resolution.
