Object detection on table

hi, I am looking for a way to detect simple objects on a table, such as knives, forks, mugs. camera 2 meters above the table…

So far I have no experience in the field. where can I start, which nodes… contour?


could be a task for DetectObject (FreeFrame DShow9). would require a custom training file though…


where can I find an manual to make the training file?

doen’t seem to be a one-click-operation… http://note.sonots.com/SciSoftware/haartraining.html
