About Embedded Eye

Welcome! Embedded Eye is a community site hosted by Centeye for discussions on embedded vision systems. This includes all relevant technical areas including optics, image sensors, algorithms, and applications, including how these components are put together. We encourage you to ask questions, share your ideas, provide comments, and otherwise help each other do neat things.

This is an inclusive community. We welcome technologists of all levels, and of all interests and applications related to embedded vision. Although this site is hosted by Centeye, we welcome discussion of non-Centeye topics and hardware, and encourage participation by competitors as well as by customers and collaborators.

"Hello, I´ve tried hooking up the stonyman breakout directly to an arduino uno and the image looks like those old tvs in which the image keeps scrolling up and down. Any thoughts on why thats happening? Thanks"

How to hook up a Stonyman Breakout directly to an Arduino (without the Rocket Shield) 1 Reply

If you don't have an ArduEye Rocket Shield, you can still hook up a Stonyman breakout board to an Arduino. All you need to do is make these connections:G connects to  GROUNDV connects to 5VRP…Continue

Firefly with optics?

Hi,

My project is the identification of animal species, with particular emphasis on black-backed jackal and caracal, with small portable units, similar to trail cameras, but with indentifying processing.

Maximum distance of 10 m would be nice.

I realise that Centeye concentrates on optical flow.

The biggest resolution Centeye sensors appear to be the Firefly 480x256.

Would the Firefly chip be available…

laser distance module - 40meter (120')

Hi,

I am looking for a low cost module to detect fill levels in silos. Red lasers seems to be the best/cheapest solution. (You can buy red laser distance meters at 50 - 100,-USD).

I need a good module for this ... anybody knows where to get it?

Thank You

IT project Ideas

Hi guys, I am new in this forum. Does anybody have any IT related project that one could do for University

final year project? I am thinking of automated registry system that will take in photo image directly from the

camera ,process it with arduino  or Pi  then send it to my database. If the photo  Image is the same in the database, the person will be marked present else, the person will be marked  absent. This is an idea but I do

not know where to start and what I…

4 x 4 thermal pixel sensor to add to stonyman eye tracking system

Experiments with using an Omron sensor to add to existing project to increase functionality.

Look at the 4x4 grids and see how eye left/right, up/down, closed/open changes the thermal value in track able amounts.

Next we will try and integrate data output with stonyman data…

youtube movie

I finally got a good LED strip to place behind the cameras, 300ma at 3.5volts. Makes a lot of difference in the calibration.

I am just playing with simple-solutions to 3D right now. It really is intriguing trying to figure out a non-moving picture way of getting 3D distances. It is really easy with a single item like a pencil on a plain background. But that's cheating. My attempt at subracting the left and right eye, then showing only the pixels with the same +/-3 of 16 brightness…

EYE results, 32 levels reduced to 16 levels for the LCD screen.

SO>>> the LCD screen is 160x128, so some of it is not used. Movie updates are about 8 per second.. only EYE number 1 is shown. The text is my diagnostic readout.

The actual pixels are read using the amplifier on the Stonyman at max gain. The PHI times are 1us high/2.5us low (before A/D). The…

Internet of Things (IoT) car traffic counter camera using an ArduEye and COSM

Eager to make a little foray into the "Internet of Things", I decided to experiment with the use of an ArduEye as an "Eye for the IoT". My house is on a fairly busy street, of which I have a good vantage point from my attic home office. A car traffic counter seemed like a good choice…
