Two different projects, but I just wanted a preliminary check of their suitability before I purchase a OpenMV H7 module.
Could I use this to count a bunch of screws on a tray for example. Say M3 x 12mm or similar, single layer.
The tray could vibrate between captures a few times to go some way to avoid overlapping/touching screws.
This would be used to count a specific quantity, with a method of removing one or two if incorrect before recounting.
This one is more developed conceptually.
I have a grid of ‘tokens’, they can be rotated to 1 of 8 directions, and will only ever be placed in a grid formation, with known locations, maybe 4x6.
I need to read the rotation of each token present in the plane of the grid only, and know it’s position in the grid.
Camera position can be fixed, either under the grid, with windows at each grid position, or on an angle looking down over the grid from one end.
Speed is not an issue, and the tokens will not be moved ‘live’ in the grid, the whole grid will be taken out, adjusted and reloaded for reading.
The readings will direct two servos to move sequentially based on the direction of each token in order.
Colour markers are fine to use, April tags are ok though less ideal. The only issue that the tokens need to be identical, it’s just their position in the grid and rotation that matters.
Any feedback on the suitability of an OpenMV camera for these applications would be most appreciated.
