Well today I spent the first portion of today attempting to install a web server to grab images from a raspberry pi. This proved fruitless.
Afterwords I looked into setting up OpenCV to replace the Matlab matrix and image functions. This seems promising, however so far I've been unable to get the library set up due to operating system issues and a number of other things. Lunch today was fun, we saw a couple TED talks and ate some complimentary pizza.
Looking forward to figuring out the library issues tomorrow.
