Image acquisition from an analog camera using Arduino

Posted on Tuesday, June 7th, 2011 in Arduino, code by the machinegeek

Carlos Agell of Hacking Electronics has developed this project which allows the acquisition of analog camera images by an Arduino. He uses an Arduino, Nootropic’s video experimenter shield, 1% resistors and a potentiometer. This hardware captures a 128×96 monochrome image and sends it back via serial to a PC where it can be viewed using LabVIEW. (Recognizing the costly nature of LabVIEW, he promises that a Processing alternative is forthcoming.)

The project files including schematic and source code are available from Carlos’ site.

Thanks Carlos! Via the contact form.
