I wanted to hook an old, 4x2 pin ESP8266 to one of my (old, kickstarted) OpenMV boards. The ESP would be a slave handled by AT commands.
I was not able to find such a setup so far. I know about the wifi shield, but I have many ESP of all kinds in my drawers, so it would make a nice use of them.
also is the serial Tx/Rx shared with the USB on the openMV board? i.e. is there some conflict to be expected with the IDE when talking with the ESP from the openmv?
By the way this little camera is delightful to work with.
As a last question… I understand that the OpenMV cams were made for image analysis in mind, but I would love to see how good the image quality can be with a better lens.
I have no clue how much I should spend on it before the JPEG compression artefacts would make the investment meaningless.
Also, the M7 probably makes ore than the initial revision, because its larger RAM (hence better compressed image quality, but this is another story, since I can live with BMP and home made compression).
