I was wondering if the axon can take video in from a digital camcorder?
Im trying to not have to buy camera for my robots vision because they are expensive. If you know of ceap ones please let me know. I think 200 for one is to much.
Also is it possible to build a camera that you can use with the axon and roborealm? By which i mean take a camera from a phone and make a board to connect it to and then use it with the software and hardware above. Like i would with a digital camcorder.
I just need something simple to do see color and see objects nothing else. Just object recignition is all I want.
Could i just get an old webcam that i then send images wirelessly from it to a pc running roborealm then send the action back to the axon which would then interpret the command and perform it?
What kind of an object are you trying to recognize? You could probably get away with a simple line-scan sensor (TSL1401 comes to mind) and an RGB light source to determine color. This would only require 128 * ADC_resolution (=1024?) bits in memory per reading, which might actually fit into SRAM.
I dont want to have the laptop on the robot. I dont care to much about lag there is lag either way. Little lag is alright its just object recognition and some tracking i want now. If i took this.
Then i could use roborealm with it to help work out what it sees. Then use bluetooth to send back the action it would need to take right. Or would i use a wireless wifi like card?
Not yet is there an area I should focus on?
There are cameras in a pc mouse. I know theres is a laser
but how would you be able to use of these cameras to do what we are talking about please inliten me.
Another thought i had is what about a camera from a cellphone would that work as well?
