Standalone motion coordinates detector


I just acquired the OpenVM cam so i’m discovering the product.

I need it to act as standalone motion sensor able to send XY coordinates to a patching application on Windows called vvvv

I read on the forum that a way might be using UART or USB.

Is it possible?



Yes, you’d use the USB VCP port class to do this. On the PC then the camera is just a serial port you open and read text from. Data will move at 12 Mb/s.

Note however, using this feature is not possible while debugging with OpenMV IDE.

So, alternatively, you can use one of he hardware serial ports on the OpenMV Cam and a serial to USB adapter to develop your app and then switch to the USB VCP port once you have all the bugs out.
