Re: Day 3: Processor Choices for Embedded Vision

There is a lot you can do with micrcontrollers and computer vision.  The key is getting the data into the micrcontroller.

In robotics, I work with the TI MSP430G2553 and the Parallax line sensor ( http://www.parallax.com/StoreSearchResults/tabid/768/List/0/SortField/4/ProductID/566/Default.aspx?txtSearch=line+camera )

The parallax line sensor id a 1D camera that is easily interfaced to any MCU with an A/D converter.

I have also looked into the Maxim NTSC to digital converter for MCU apps.  This chip makes it easy to interface a camera to a MCU. http://www.maximintegrated.com/datasheet/index.mvp/id/6193
