Image Processing and Arduino

Hey guys.....

I am thinking of doing a project which involves image processing(real time) through a webcam and an Arduino connected at the usb port.... which in turn will glow LEDs. I am confused whether it is possible to achieve or not. If so what Arduino Board would be the best option(cost effective) .

Thanks in advance.

Only the Yun can cope with this. And for a beginner an image processing project of any kind on anything would be far to much.

Very hard to do as Arduino is only 16Mhz, so it cannot keep up with a real time video stream without additional hardware. Check a Raspberry PI for the video processing, and you can use an Arduino to control the LEDS (and get commands from the RPI).

By coincidence in next months issue of The MagPi involves an image processing project where colored pegs in a board are used with a web cam to make a physical percussion sequencer.

Thank you so much guys :slight_smile:
