First Impression of new Bridge Card Reader

Work is well under way for the improved version of the Bridge Card Reader. As mentioned earlier this version is faster and more accurate but there are more advantages of using a different programming language. The camera is able to see the whole playing field, the system detects cards lying on top of eachother and it now detects cards real-time. Video material will follow later when the card suit can be identified.
