Code for CMUcam + Arduino
« on: September 09, 2007, 01:45:12 PM »
Hi,

i`m trying to communicate with an CMUcam from an Arduino board. I'm starting to get really tired of it, as i can't figure out if i`m really doing right. I`ts very hard to debug it as i can`t connect it to the computer directly or anything ( it is the BoeBot version ). I don`t even know if the sharpness is rightly set on it. The only values i seem to be able to get from color tracking is either that the camera didn't find anything or that the whole window is filled.

Is there someone out there that has done an successful installation between the CMUcam and an Arduino board? What would you do in my situation, can i still connect it to the computer somehow (only using the TTL communication that is)?

Thanks in advance and have a good day,
Fredrik Andersson

Im currently working on a robot that uses the same microcontroller as the Arduino, with the CMUcam . . . but havent had time to finish it yet. Will probably take me another month, Im always sooo busy . . .

If you can wait, just check back on this post here in about a month:

Not a chance! :) I was out for a shortcut, not measured in work, but in time. I have the knowledge needed to actually solve it myself. :)

How about YOU check back in this thread in a WEEK!  :D

Oh, it will be commented. So very commented it will be.

In fact, im planning to make it an library for the Arduino community, with a carefully written description.
