I’ve been chomping at the bit to get into machine vision with OpenMV, but until now, school and work have prevented me from poking around too much. I’ve just downloaded the Mac IDE and started looking at examples to begin to familiarize myself with the board’s capabilities. The basics worked just fine, but when I got to scripts which needed SD cards, I started having trouble. I have an SD card, but loading it into the board makes it completely unresponsive to the IDE, blinking blue and yellow. I imagine this is because the board is trying to find the main.py script, so I tried adding a script requiring an SD card (the basic differencing script is the one I used) to the SD card, but its behavior doesn’t change. I also tried to run it without an SD card for kicks and got the error I expected about failing to write the requested bytes.
Any advice here? I’m really looking forward to the tutorials, because I am woefully unprepared for this machine vision jargon! Time to read up! If you have any sources for learning this topics, feel free to drop those here, too.
