Project Description: This was an experiment to bring the video tracking and video recognition that is very popular at ITP into the realm of very small and inexpensive microcontrollers. It is a continuation of a project that made use of a PIC microcontroller and a Quickcam. With the introduction of very cheap CMOS cameras and very fast SX microcontrollers, this tool could have greater speed and resolution. At the same time a group at CMU developed a commercial kit which uses the same components (better engineering).
Technical Notes: I wrote the software in C for a SX Chip and build the circuitry to connect to a CMOS camera from Omnivision.
