Flappy Bird Detection in Video Using Match Template

Beginner

This tutorial shows how to use OpenCV's cv2.matchTemplate method to detect the Flappy Bird character in a video. We'll create a Python project that demonstrates this template matching technique, suitable for beginners and intermediates in Python and OpenCV.

Introduction

This project is designed to teach you how to detect the Flappy Bird character in a video using the cv2.matchTemplate method provided by OpenCV, a powerful library for image processing and computer vision. The cv2.matchTemplate function is a useful tool for template matching, which is a technique in digital image processing for finding small parts of an image that match a template image. In this project, we'll create a Python project that applies this method to detect the Flappy Bird character in a video, making it a practical example for beginners and intermediates in Python and OpenCV.
