Getting a computer to “talk” with a CMOS camera can be difficult, if not impossible, at times. The site has links to PDF files that contain the schematics and theory of operation. There is also a link containing all the code. It’s a nice solution to a common problem.
The aim of this project is the development and construction of an interface between a CMOS camera and a computer. This interface allows a user to get images from the camera, to change some of the properties of the camera as brightness, luminance, etc from a computer. Also some image process is implemented allowing the camera to track white objects and follow them with a servomotor. The interface was implemented using the Atmel AVR ATmega16 microcontroller.
