CMUCam 2 pkg with OV6620

The new version of the CMU Camera. This version incorporates a on-board frame buffer allowing much more flexibility in image manipulation, sub-sampling, and higher frame rates. This version comes completely assembled.

More Details:

The CMUCam2 consists of a SX52 microcontroller interfaced with an OV6620 Omnivision CMOS camera on a chip that allows high level data to be extracted from the camera's streaming video.

The CMUCam2 communcicates via a RS-232 or a TTL serial port that has the following functionallity:

* Track user defined color blobs at up to 50 frames per second
* Track motion using frame differencing at 26 frames per second
* Find the centroid of any tracking data
* Gather mean color and variance data
* Gather a 28 bin histogram of each color channel
* Manipulate horizontally pixel differenced images
* Transfer a real-time binary bitmap of the tracked pixels in an image
* Arbitrary image windowing
* Adjust the camera's image properties
* Dump a raw image (single or multiple channels)
* Up to 176x255 resolution
* Supports multiple baudrates (115200, 57600, 38400, 19200, 9600, 4800, 2400, 1200)
* Control 5 servo outputs
* Slave parallel image processing mode off of a single camera bus
* Automatically use servos to do two axis color tracking
* Flexible output packet customization
* Multiple pass image processing on a buffered image
