I'm quite interested in building a robot which can use image processing to help it navigate. I've had a bit of experience with image processing, but I'm not too sure on how to incorporate it into a robot.
My idea is to have a wireless camera mounted on a robot that communicates to my pc, and using a program such as roborealm I can process the images. Then based on these images I could communicate back to the robot via a UART bluetooth link.
Is this a standard way of doing things, or is their a way to connect a camera directly to the microcontroller and communicate with the computer in both directions using UART?
Any tips or suggestions on alternate ways of doing this are welcome
Thanks in advance for your help
