We'll physically extract the IR camera from the Wii remote and interface it with an arduino controlling a servo. The Wii IR camera is a beautiful thing. It has an integrated processor which outputs the X and Y positions and size of the 4 brightest IR points that is sees. This can be very useful for tracking in robotics or human interfaces. Enjoy!
Let’s equip Arduino with a serial-interface JPEG Camera with IR and try two applications: the first one saves shots (on a SD-card) at regular intervals while the second uses a PIR sensor to detect intrusions and photograph what happens. Recently, miniaturized cameras with serial communication interface have been launched on the market. Compared […]
