Hi, this originally was a planned to be implemented but WiFi speed was so bad at 230kb/s that we didn’t do it. However, in the latest firmware release I figured out why that was the case and wifi speed is now 15Mb/s (previous firmware waited on a ACK per TCP packet which is about a 30 ms round-trip time per 1400 bytes). The IDE already has all the hooks in it to make this work, so, I just need to update the OpenMV Cam firmware to get this feature operational again.
So, it’s coming soon. In the mean-time. The interface library we just released (blog post coming soon) can stream wifi video.
The interface library firmware update will be ready by the weekend and will be installed into OpenMV IDE.
OK, I just wasn’t sure if “debugging” included all IDE over wifi functionality. I spent a few hours trying to figure out why this wasn’t working for me since I didn’t find anything in Github. I opened this issue so we can follow along for when it is completed.
I am interested in this feature as well.
I would like to download and run new code remotely over WiFi.
Is this a supported feature at the moment?
Otherwise, I plan to use an RPi to update the OpenMV H7 Cam via USB.
Thanks @iabdalkader! Would this firmware allow me to update code via CLI (as suggested here? I am just asking, not suggesting for an additional feature.) If so, I can confidently move away from using a second device, which feels like overkill, and order the WiFi Shield. Thank You.
