Re: image processing

Hi

If you just need to move the camera with the light .

1-Read the image from memory
2-Apply threshold filter on the image "turn pixels with brithness higher than the threshold into black & pixels with brightness less than threshold into white"
3-calculte the centroide coordinates of the black body in your image
4-with each new frame calculate the new threshold coordinates
5-the diffrance of the two coordinates indicates the direction and distance to move
6-drive a steper motor with no of steps prportional to the distance required

thats all
you can do it in any language
