Over USB, there are no wireless facilities in either the camera or the box
it will be used on.
The software I am trying to improve is the camunits-emc package. It is
currently working but for this we need two things, first being the clipping
to get rid of a huge amount of data that has to be processed. If its not
part of the picture area of interest, throw it away because that will also
enhance the accuracy of the end result. The processing lag is such that I
can plant an object in front of the camera, and its all of 4 seconds before
it makes it to the screen. To be useful as machine vision, this needs to
be reduced to a few hundred milliseconds. As I said earlier, I won't be
going to the shop to play with it until I can walk on this knee again. The
sawbones seemed to think, given that I am diabetic, a week might be too
quick, we heal slow.
