After completing the Kotlin for Java Developers Course on Coursera I was looking for an excuse to put my freshly gained Kotlin knowledge into action. I decided to address my frustration about the large amount of falsely detected movements by one of my security camera’s.
One of the core components of that solution is a REST API that receives an image and returns a list of detected objects. I decided to develop that using Kotlin, KotlinDL and KTor.
This blog posts describes the core components of the solution. The source code of the example is available at GitHub.
