I am building an InMoov, and I am looking at the wide variety of available cameras out there, mostly narrowed by having to fit the unit into the available space in the head of the InMoov.
Some questions I have a hard time answering right now and would appreciated any advice...
I seem to have a hard time locating the Hercules Twist cams in the US, so I've been looking at others.
I can see the ease of using a USB (webcam) type camera, but at what resolution? I guess the higher the better, but I have no idea what an HD cam does to facial recognition or tracking compute times. How do I make that tradeoff? There is very little difference in price between a 340x240, 640x480, or a 720 tvl cam nowadays.
I see some are using a RasPi for the cam, but I don't konw how that limits what is supported in MyRobotLab, if there are any limits. How does using a RasPi front end affect computing requirements for MRL?
How soon will any benefit come from using 2 cameras? Not trying to rush anything or anyone, but is that soon, months, or years away?
Which lens types and FOV are best for what kind of functions?
Just trying to get a handle around cam selection for now, hoping to spark a discussion on the subject.
