I finally got around to using my OpenMV camera I bought a while ago.
The back says “OpenMV3 R1”. I’m wondering what the difference is between this and the latest M7?
Particularly, I seem to run out of frame buffer memory really easily (doing find_lines on anything but a tiny ROI). Will upgrading help?
This is my first time trying to do anything with machine vision and I got to say it was pretty easy. The API gives you some very powerful tools. I’ve been programming for 30 years, but just never programmed python so had to learn a little there too. But it was a great opportunity to dig in.
This was the project this weekend…
Works well but it is still very dependent on location. But with such a small ROI available for orientation, I did the best I could in the time I had. Right now the spacing is fixed, but I’d love to be able to calculate it on the fly so distance from the lens wasn’t so critical. Thinking next year I might add some fiducials to the ballot haha.
