Hi - very impressed with the camera and software. Hope this is a simple question:
I have been doing some image processing using openCV. I bought an M7 camera because I need IR sensitivity, adjustable frame rate and frame size, synchronization with a blinking LED illuminator,etc. But for now I would like to dump the frames to my PC and continue to process them in openCV. (May switch to processing in openMV later.)
What is the most efficient way to send frames over USB/serial to a Python program running on a PC? On the PC I want each monochrome frame to be a simple Numpy integer array. I don’t need any compression or a standard video/image format. I think that transmission would be fast enough with ASCII text, although I suppose binary would be faster overall.
I am reasonably familiar with Python but new to Micropython. Maybe I am just not understanding the documentation.
Thanks for any suggestions!
