Give your gizmo the gift of sight
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 with optics? I have no experience or supplier of optics.
Would the Firefly chip be able to be read out fast enough for tracking the animal?
I am experienced in embedded systems, so I do not need to use an Arduino.
I would like to use the cheapest processor in order to keep the cost down and broaden the user base.
Is this project practical with the firefly chip?
