Community Question

I'm using the EZB over USB. So the robot will always be connected to the computer. If I have taken the load off the EZB (by not using the camera on the
ezb). Shouldn't it be possible to use all the available resolution of my USB camera in EZ Builder since the computer is handling the image stream? I have a 1080 webcam but in the camera controls max resolution is 640 in EZ Builder. Can someone explain to me the limitation or if a work around is possible.

Can you use two cameras? EZ Robot camera for image processing and the higher res camera for sight? Just thinking.

I'm still not certain what the request is. Are you asking for EZ-Builder to process 1080p video?

@DJ,

The post was asking the question if EZ Builder uses the full resolution of the camera chosen. I only saw 640 using a 1080 camera.

I understand now that the overhead is too high to process 1080 frames.

They (client) think the higher the resolution the easier for the camera to see an object clearly.

@Dave, I made that suggestion, they are thinking on how to install one.

The client only cares about the resolution for detecting objects, or displaying to spectator viewers?

For detecting objects, the resolution isn't that important - as there's a compromise based on distance. Higher resolution means objects further away have a higher percentage of detection.

If the client only cares about the resolution for displaying to spectators, then that's doable, but any processing will really slow down the framerate.

This bit of code has been lying around for a while, so i threw it in a release today. The code allows custom camera resolution, which may be useful for some of you. Please read the disclaimer http://www.ez-robot.com/Community/Forum/Thread?threadId=10446
