The phase correlation example is based on Dennis Tessier’s work.
Hussein Abdul-Rahman contributed the initial version (two-dimensional) of the connected-component analysis.
The interactive presentation software is based on the experience gained in a previous project by Juan Roldan, Ushakiran Soutapalli, Julien Faucher, and Claudia Amico.
Kim Chuan Lim implemented various sub-pixel corner detection algorithms with Ruby.
Aiden Lockwood implemented software for operating a transmission electron microscope using Ruby and HornetsEye. Jing Jing Wang, Jong Peng, and Ralph Gay helped understanding the controller.
Géraud De La Mensbruge used HornetsEye for inspection of industrial SMT nozzles.
Chinwe Lucy Ozoegwu implemented a graphical user interface for displaying, processing, and recording of infrared videos.
Sonia Fernández Rodríguez did an implementation of the RANSAC algorithm with Ruby.
Bala Amavasai developed a large part of the Mimas library and he organised the Nanorobotics grant. HornetsEye benefits a lot from experience gained during the development of the Mimas C++ computer vision library.
Jan Wedekind initiated this project and currently is the main developer of this software.
Thanks to the members of the Microsystems and Machine Vision Laboratory for their suggestions, support, and for using this software ;)
The people at Sheffield Hallam University and the Materials and Engineering Research Institute are supporting us and there is a long lasting commitment to free software by management.
There are a lot of developers who have developed other open-source software on which this library is based upon.
Thanks to all developers using this library for their valuable feedback!
Part of the work was funded by the EPSRC Nanorobotics Basic Technology grant.
