Lol, it's because my english teacher is an Amrican Patriotic, so with my project partner, we decided to put the Marines Hymn, and an "US Army approved" ^^

I don't really know if lego meets military design specs.

@dario111cro :

The camera is a Logitech C250, I use it because it's very well supported thanks to USB Video Class, but in reality, it's not directly connected to the Arduino, indeed, the camera is connected to the PC, and the software is connected to the Arduino.

So the software is a kind of platform between the camera and the Arduino


@rogue :

I recommand you to read O'Reilly OpenCV and the official OpenCV wiki

The book 'Learning OpenCV' looks awesome!  I'm very excited to get my hands dirty with it.

MatLAB works well but its not open source and very expensive!

Very good book ( as always in O'Reilly :) )

And programming in C/C++ is more cool (for me) than programming MatLAB ...

I am going to have a swing at Python with OpenCV!  I've already done a few programs that communicate with Bluetooth devices using python, and it is easy to make GUIs in Windows with wxPython.  I recently learned Python and think its the best thing since sliced bread, but C is also where its at.

Nice work.  This is cool stuff, and what I plan to implement on my next robot using a wifi webcam and a pan and tilt kit (Dagu perhaps).  Can you give me any pointers or useful links for getting started with OpenCV video processing on Windows using Visual Studio 2008?


What is that camera? I see it very often in projects. Is it hard to use it with Arduino?
