hi
i am a newbie in robotics.i want to control a robot by vision control through pc via microcontroller(pic) on the robot. the camera will be interfaced to the controller(pic) and the pic will be controlled through pc. but i don't know how to start this .i don't know which camera to use & how to interface this to the controller. also i want to make the robot wireless.so please help me in making the transmitter & receivers & guide me in the interfacing of camera, receiver to pc,etc.if anyone has resources on the net please do let me know. all i know what all thingsm i have to study. i have studied microcontrollers .
:? i know i'm asking some very stupid questions ...........but this is my beginning only!!!

To do image processing, you are going to need quite a bit more horesepower than a PIC is able to provide. Many IP algorithms are designed with vector calculations in mind. In this case, it would be helpful if you perform the algorithms on a PC or at least a good DSP.

I would suggest youto get a CMU Cam... You can get the data you need serially and let the PIC work with what the camera is seeing.

So far I am sendinf all the camera data to a excell sheet receiving all the cells to fill thru the serial port from the PIC. Once you know what your data looks like and grab a feeling for what the camera is comunitcating to the PIC then you can do some cool stuff :)
