About this product

Description

• Small form factor IR camera with tracking up to four heat/IR sources
• Can be controlled with Arduino, AVR via I2C interface
• Easy to install and to connect
• Connections: Four wires with female sockets for power and I2C

The IR Tracking Camera is a small form factor IR camera capable of tracking up to four heat/IR sources. The applications are plenty for example; tracking of robots with IR transmitters for navigation to light barriers, determining the direction where the object is going and working as a flame sensor or tracking heat sources. It is fully compatible with Arduino with only four wires. This infrared positioning camera can be controlled with Arduino, AVR via I2C interface. It is able to track mobile infrared points and transmit the data back to the host. The horizontal angle of the camera is 33 degrees while the vertical angle is 23 degrees. It returns up to four points at a time when it identifies an object.

Works well so far.

Review by Cadin
General

I think it is a convenient camera for the project I am working on. With its size it can be implemented easily in many different projects.

Well documented and works very well.

Review by Vincent
General

Camera specs are actually a bit better than what's listed, at least it was on the unit I tested:
* ~40° hFOV and ~30° vFOV
* Range depends on the IR source: I had ~1.5m steady detection for a lighter flame and LEDs, but ~4m with a TV remote.

Detection DOES require very precise 'aiming' at the sensor. LEDs need near perfect angles at greater distances.

Only trouble I encountered was occasional trouble with the Processing code found on the wiki article. If you can code a bit, try to see if you can force resynchronisation of the serial port. I had to use LabVIEW for a school project and forced closing, reopening and reconfiguration of the port had it working every time on all tested computers.

All in all, it's a very fun product for the price. I'd love to know if hacking the camera firmware is in any possible.

The camera works very well. Has a flaw , it's a little expensive price .

Fixed I2C address

Review by garrett
General

The camera and code are excellent. It does have a short coming in the fact that they all have the same I2C address without the functionality to change them. All in all, still a great piece of hardware.

As expected

Wii remote camera with i2C interface. Got it hooked up to arduino in minutes and working in about the same amount of tine. No problems encountered, documentation and example code works
