Is there any similar (less expensive alternative) arduino board to CMUcam4?

CMUcam4:The CMUcam4 is a fully programmable embedded computer vision sensor. The main processor is the Parallax P8X32A (Propeller Chip) connected to an OmniVision 9665 CMOS camera sensor module.

  • @IgorStoppa I can't click that, and copying and pasting is as onerous as using google to look it up for myself. My dig was to try and get Rwy5 to provide a link (and even a little information) in the question...

    OpenCV on Raspberry or Beaglebone.

I have used OpenCV on Intel Galileo for doing recognition of sub images from a larger image (given the cover of a magazine, identify it in a pile of magazines partially covering it). The frame rate is far from stellar. I haven't tried with Edison but it should be much faster, as it's an Atom core vs the pentium-like Quark. OpenCV is optimized for x86.

I used a normal webcam to capture the image, so this solution gives more flexibility in the choice of the sensor.

You could have a look at ROS on Edison.
