Good morning my fellow engineers

I've been thinking about starting a new project but I would like to know if somebody has had an experience with this kind of idea and maybe you could tell me how feasible it is to create.

My problem is that I need to detect if there is a certain color coverage over a certain area. I know I could address this using color detection sensors and I've got the code for it, but since this is a large area I was thinking of installing an overhead USB Sentech camera with a Tamron lens to cover the full area I need.

The area to be scanned will not change, neither will the color to be detected.

So, how does it sound? do you think it's possible to do it? Has anyone tried to do color scanning with a USB camera?

Thanks!
