OpenMV Cam M7 platform

New product ! 

OpenMV is a new ARM based ecosystem which occupies a comfortable niche half way between Arduino & RaspberryPi for dedicated camera applications.  Jump to the bottom for video or read on...

The OpenMV Cam is a small, low power, microcontroller board which allows you to easily implement applications using machine vision in the real-world. You program the OpenMV Cam in high level Python scripts (courtesy of the MicroPython Operating System) instead of C/C++. This makes it easier to deal with the complex outputs of machine vision algorithms and working with high level data structures. But, you still have total control over your OpenMV Cam and its I/O pins in Python. You can easily trigger taking pictures and video on external events or execute machine vision algorithms to figure out how to control your I/O pins.

Lenses

We currently have Telephoto, SUPER Telephoto & InfraRed in stock. 

 

Telephoto

The standard lens that ships with your OpenMV Cam has a 115° field-of-view (FOV) which allows your OpenMV Cam to see more things, but, with less detail. This lens has a 25° FOV so it provides your OpenMV Cam with about a 4X zoom on any particular object.


 

SuperTelephoto

This lens has a 12° FOV so it provides your OpenMV Cam with about a 8X zoom on any particular object.

Eg. Human eye tracking. 

InfraRed

This lens gives your OpenMV Cam the ability to see IR light. The standard lens that ships with your OpenMV Cam has a 650nm IR cut filter that blocks IR light. 

The IR Lens is great for any application that involves tracking IR light. For example, you can use the IR Lens to do eye-tracking by looking at IR light reflected off of someone's pupils.

 

 

Add on Boards

LCD


1.8" 128x160 16-bpp (RGB565) TFT LCD display with a controllable backlight.


 

Wifi

ATWINC1500 FCC Certified WiFi module which can transmit data at up to 48 Mbps making it perfect for streaming video.

 

Motor Control

The motor shields provides a convenient way of powering your OpenMV Cam and controlling low-power motors in one package. It features a 5V linear regulator to power your OpenMV Cam from a battery along with a motor driver chip to power two <2A low-power motors from the same battery.

The motor driver chip has 2 pins per motor to set its internal H-Bridge direction for each motor and an additional pin per motor for PWM control. So, once you set your driving direction you just have to control the PWM per motor.

 

Proto Board !

 

The Proto Shield gives you the ability to easily extend your OpenMV Cam's functionality. It features a 10x10 through-hole prototyping area with a 3.3V rail and a GND rail that are connected to your OpenMV Cam's 3.3V rail and GND rail. The rest of the I/O pins are left unconnected to let you build what you want.

Need to add an accelerometer board to your OpenMV Cam? Or any other sensor board? You can easily solder these onto the Proto Shield so you can use them with your OpenMV Cam on-the-go. Or, do you need more illumination? Then build a more powerful LED circuit on a Proto Shield for your OpenMV Cam. With the Proto Shield you can extend your OpenMV Cam's functionality how you want.
