thinking about saving up my money for a cmucam3. i need some books to teach me how to use camera vision with microcontrollers though, because the only other robot ive built was a line follower from 2 photoresistors. i have expereince in c++ and some .net programming, and have 2 robotic books which one is hard to follow as it is not for beginners and i have trobule understand some circuts.
so, my questions are:
can anyone show me some good tutorials and/or books on beginner robot vision?
do i need a seperate microcontroller or can i use the on board one from the cmucam3?
the only microcontroller knowledge i have is of simple I/O like HIGH and LOW, and some loops and conditionals etc.
