Good info or project about blob detection, line following or similar using camera and microcontroller

Hello all,

I decided to post here as a member since I have now spent many many hours without success to find what I'm about to ask.

I have an STM32F103 arm based board with 2.8" tft and a camera OV7670+fifo buffer memory bought cheaply from Ebay. Many hours I've struggled but I got it this far that I get qvga or qqvga (160x120 pixel) full color images from the OV7670 into my STM32 and show the image on the LCD. If somebody is interested, I'm willing to share the whole code.

Need help in choosing the board or microcontroller

I have been searchinf for hours adnd now I have came here to get some help in my problem.
I wanna control 6 dc motors of 48V. I wanna run them through image processing, So kindly suggest me some board or microcontroller for this. I have looked at arduino and raspberry pi. But I am confused which one I should get??????

And my next question is that I have calculated distance b/w object and my robot through image processing, now how I can send this distance to robot's motor that should move for some specific time???????????

Guidance on controlling motors and image processing


I am building a new robot in which I'm using image processing. I have connected  a camera to laptop and doing image processing through Matlab.

Now, I want to controll motors through my laptop. How I can do this? Mean how I can connect motors to my laptop?
And next thing is that how I can interlink matlab and motor's controll code, so that motors run following the image processing.
