Video for robots
February 11, 2010
I would like to build a robot that uses a video camera, processes the data, and then reacts to that data. Basicly I want to be able to designate a destination using a laser and the robot will chase the laser. I do not know what sort of micro processor I will need for this and also I do not know what kind of camera will work.
I have been looking at the parallax propeller as a possible processor, but i do not know how to interface a camera to it, or servos (which I also need to control).
(I have only ever used the arduino, and a 8 bit freescale processor so my experiance is limited.)
Thanks for any advice
