 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I've  got this friend that need to do a project for school. This project involves a robot that looks at plants and recognizes the bad ones then kills them :p.
The robot is already build with a Arduino but he still needs to implement the camera. He asked for my help because i have somewhat experience with programing but i never worked with an Arduino or c language for that matter. So in other words i got no clue how to get started.

I'm thinking we should first have a way to recognize the 3d images from the camera with Matlab or any other software?

Any help is welkom,

Thanks in advance,

Seba

Yes, you should. MatLab seems unlikely, but OpenCV can do image processing/recognition.

Then, all the application on the PC needs to do is tell the Arduino "kill" or "don't kill".
