I am quite new to the Raspberry Pi world but very interested. I have done a few basic things on the Raspberry Pi so far, the main one was learning to code in python (as I already know C) and learning to use a linux based system (first time!).
So far I own a 256Mb Raspberry Pi model B, 512Mb Raspberry Pi model B and a Gertboard.
The main project I will be working on involves:
-Determining the image processing capabilities of the Raspberry Pi
-Get a webcam working with the Raspberry Pi, accessed via python and C (most likely using openCV)
-Write a program to capture an image, wait, capture another, compare these two images and determine the direction and speed (using the wait time)
-Implement this on a UAV as the main navigation protocol (Pretty much like the AR Drones)
I will be using the new Raspberry Pi camera when I can get my hands on it but for now the webcam will suit for proof of concept, also will most likely be using C as my final programming language as it is faster than python (disregarding pypi)
Anyway, I will be no doubt be needing help in this project and hope to find others doing similar things, and I will try help others who need it.
