I am considering using an Arduino board for a project but was hoping for some advise and direction.
Basically, I need to use a camera with an Arduino and I need the Arduino to recognise a laser point on the ground, via the camera. I then need it to translate this into DMX via a DMX shield to make an automated stage lighting luminaire track around and land on the dot.
I presume the best way is to do it using a video camera, but if anyone has any other suggestions that would achieve the same thing, then that would be much appreciated. I haven't touched an Arduino before and having done some research around the forums and example projects, I haven't been able to find the information I need.
