OpenCV and Arduino

Hi Everyone,

I'm starting a new project and I'm a newbie with Arduino. I'll use a webcam to detect an object using OpenCV and then use this data as input to my Arduino. How can I get the data from my laptop and then input it to my Arduino? I need even the most basic guides and tips.


Via serial, see

It really depends on what language and OS you're going to use to communicate with the Arduino and what type of communication is occurring, so as much detail as you can provide will get you your best answer. Here's an example in Perl if that's helpful.

Thankyou Chagrin!

I'll post more details about my project after I have studied those links :D I'll ask again later.
