Okay, guys. I have this 3 cameras(middle from the iPhone 6s, 2 at the side I found, and I think there are from modern phone). I need some information how to connect Arduino Uno to them. I know c/c++, assembler, but noob in microcontrollers, if this knowledge can come useful.enter image description here

  • About fingerprint sensor, but the answer is fitting also this question: arduino.stackexchange.com/questions/71753/…

    This is a demo code with a proximity sensor on how to Trigger the camera of your cell Phone by Arduino. You can make Ultrasound Motion sensor or PIR sensor to work as a Motion sensing anti theft Camera system. * It's just an Idea , The Sky is the Limit */ int trig = 13; void setup() { pinMode(trig,OUTPUT); Serial.begin(9600); // initialize serial communication at 9600 bits per second: } void loop() // the loop routine runs over and over again forever: { int sensorValue = analogRead(A0); // read the input on analog pin 0: Serial.println(sensorValue); // print out the value you read: delay(1); /

You need either a memory extension for your UNO - projects like Arducam did this way back 2016 and then used an OV2640 module. If you want to develop something yourself these are the steps (hurdles) to take:

  • Get a datasheet of the camera
  • Design a circuit including
    • plug for Camera and a
    • memory module (min 512Kb)
  • Attach it to the UNO
  • Write a library/function module (see datasheet for details) and
  • bring it to life

My tip save ca. two years of your life and get for 6-8$ an ESP32cam
This will cost you enough of your time, but be much more rewarding
