your Robotics Edition is great,
opencv works out of the box and my post-calculation is still faster then the 30fps of the webcam...
Thanks a lot!
I wantet to use the U2 as a "video input extension" for my XU to keep
the XU cpu-power for other tasks.
But seeing the low cpu-usage on the U2 I think my XU could handle both,
the video input analysis and the main tasks.
Do you have a Robotics Edition for the XU as well?
If I get the OpenCV and the XU-extension I should be fine.
PS : I run the inexpensive maestro board (RC Servo Controller) from pololu to create 12 pwm Signals with
customized timing from the USB port. This is great for Robotics!
I'm glad you find this useful. I am planning an XU version, but I wanted to move to ROS Hydro and there seems to be an unresolved issue with the ARM platform (I'm hoping this will be fixed soon). I may go ahead and make a Groovy version for XU since I don't know when the Hydro issue will be fixed.
Yes, I have used the Maestro before. It is nice for controlling servos. I also use the Teensy microcontroller from PJRC for general purpose IO (servos, I2C, GPIO, etc).
