Hey, I'm working on a project at university. My expertise is in the mathematics, building, and experimentation of the test rig, I have almost zero experience in coding in any way. My partner, who was meant to do the coding, is leaving university early this semester, so if I want results before Christmas, I'll need to take the reins myself.
The coding side of the project is very simple (I think!) All I need is the Arduino to be able to track how far two marked points move over a period of time. It does not need to calculate velocity, or time, simply the change in displacement. I currently have a webcam and an Arduino Uno, but more parts can be ordered under budget if needed. Can anyone give me advice, or even lead me to some resources to use?
I understand my complete lack of knowledge in this area doesn't help, so thank you all a lot for taking your time to read this!
