I have looked on the official site and searched many forums so please don't burn me on this question
(and I did read the object detection question posted earlier)
I have a limited budget and would like to do some object recognition with a cmucam but I don't know which version I would need. I would like to run through a basic algorithm to detect a certain shape and then look at the center of the object. I read that the CMUCam2 accesses pixel data from the frame buffer, making it faster, but what does this mean? Will there be lower fps? If I were to do all of this calculating from a microcontroller, how fast would that microcontroller need to be? Last of all, would it be best to just save my money for a cmucam3?
I will appreciate any help, and I hope you have a Happy New Year!
