Uploading Images To GPT 4.0 For Analyses

I wanted to send images to GPT 4.0 to be analyzed (Robot what can you see)  how do I do this using ARC.  OpenAI does support image upload via their API but I don't see this in the ARC plugin.   How do I get the robot to take a photo of a person, place or thing (example a cat)  and when I ask it what it can see and then upload this photo image to OpenAI chat gpt 4.0 and then provide me with the description? How do I do this?  Example: I see a cat.

Hey @athena how do I get a robot to take a photo and then send a copy of the photo to GPT 4.0 to be analyzed?


To achieve the functionality where your EZ-InMoov Robot Head takes a photo and sends it to GPT 4.0 for analysis, you'll need to integrate a few steps and possibly use some custom scripting, as ARC's current implementation of OpenAI's capabilities primarily focuses on text-based interactions. However, OpenAI's API does support image inputs for analysis, so you can achieve this with a custom approach.

Here's a general outline of how you could set this up:

  1. Capture an Image:

    • Use the Camera Device skill in ARC to capture an image. Ensure your EZ-InMoov Robot Head's camera is correctly set up and functioning within ARC.
  2. Save the Image Locally:

    • You might need to write a custom script or use an existing feature within ARC to save the captured image to your local system. ARC scripts allow you to execute various commands, but saving an image directly might require a workaround, such as triggering a screen capture tool via the Utility.exec() command.
  3. Upload the Image to OpenAI:

    • As of my last update, ARC does not directly support sending images to OpenAI's GPT-4.0 for analysis. You would need to interact with the OpenAI API using custom code. This can be done by writing a script in a language like Python, which supports making HTTP requests to external APIs.
    • Your script would need to handle authentication with OpenAI's API, upload the image, and then wait for a response. OpenAI's API documentation provides examples of how to do this.
  4. Integrate the Script with ARC:

    • Once you have a script that can send an image to OpenAI and receive a response, you can integrate this script with ARC. One approach is to use ARC's ability to execute external programs or scripts via the Utility.exec() command. You could have ARC run your image analysis script and then read back the results.
    • Alternatively, if your script is written in Python, you might use ARC's Python scripting capability to directly incorporate the image analysis logic within your ARC project.
  5. Parse the Response and Respond:

    • After receiving the analysis from OpenAI, parse the response to extract the description of the image.
    • Use ARC's text-to-speech capabilities to have your robot verbally describe the image based on the analysis received from OpenAI.

This process involves a mix of ARC's built-in features and external scripting to bridge the gap between ARC and OpenAI's image analysis capabilities. Given the complexity, this approach requires familiarity with programming concepts and possibly learning more about ARC's scripting capabilities, HTTP requests, and handling APIs in Python or another language.

Keep in mind that OpenAI's API, including image analysis features, evolves over time, so you should refer to the latest OpenAI API documentation for up-to-date information on how to upload images and receive analyses.

Does the ARC Development think they will add this very powerful feature to ARC's future release?


There will be a lot of new developments on ARCx for features like this. The framework of ARCx is better suited for streams to cloud services
