BeagleBone Black Motion Controlled Targeting System #beagleboneblack @TXInstruments @beagleboardorg
YouTube user XiongWeiLun made this really cool motion controlled targeting system.
A Beaglebone Black based system. The Beaglebone receives video feed from a simple USB camera, processes the images, finds the approximate center point and moves the laser turret servos that point.
The Beaglebone is running Ubuntu and the system was programmed in Python. The OpenCV library was used to handle the image processing. A great deal of help was received through both the OpenCV reference website and Stackoverflow.com. Excellent resources for anyone attempting image processing, especially for their first time.
Immeasurable help was received from professors and classmates at Brigham Young University – Idaho.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
