The OpenMV Cam is like a super powerful microcontroller board with a camera on board that you program in MicroPython. It's easy to run machine visions algorithms on what the OpenMV Cam sees so you can track colors, detect faces, and more in seconds, and thanks to the embedded functionality, you can then control I/O pins in the real-world. You program the OpenMV Cam in high level MicroPython scripts instead of C/C++. This makes it easier to deal with the complex outputs of machine vision algorithms and working with high level data structures. But you still have total control over your OpenMV Cam and its I/O pins. You can easily trigger taking pictures and video on external events or execute machine vision algorithms to figure out how to control your I/O pins.
Check out the OpenMV site for tons of documentation and guides! This is version R2 of the board, it’s the same as the original R1 but with a new camera sensor. The new sensor has better image quality and more resolution
The OpenMV Cam features:
The OpenMV Cam can be used for the following things currently (more in the future):
Finally, all the above features can be mixed and matched in your own custom application along with I/O pin control to talk to the real world.
