Simple Robot with Camera
« on: June 23, 2007, 12:44:32 PM »
i am pretty new to robotics...i have just made a simple line following robot using photoresistors.. Now i want to do the same thing using a camera...
i have a cheap ccd camera which just has the red output port ( normal AV wire port )... Can i use this camera??
if so how will i be able to configure it??
and will i still be able to use the ATMEGA16 that i used for the old robot??
i am totally lost as to how to connect the camera to the microcontroller!!.. Can anyone also suggest a good link where i will be able to learn the programming knowledge i will need to do the same....
Thanks,
Tarush

I recommend just buying a CMUcam or AVRcam (search for both in the forum/web)

Both the AVRcam and CMUcam are open source and have both schematics and code for you to copy.

Have you checked out RoboRealm yet?

John Orlando, the maker of AVRCam, told me that he ships worldwide and has many customers around the globe. So send him an email to get a quote on the shipment for your country. I'm sure he'll help you gladly.
Check out the uBotino robot controller!
