One of my priorities is to search and identify what’s new in robotics – from sensors, motor controllers to robot kits and books. Everything that can be useful for those who’s working in the DIY area.
One of the kits that caught my attention is CQRobot. It’s a new kit for computer vision applications and less for beginners in the robotics field. The video camera attached to a pan and tilt system can be programmed to detect lines, obstacles, or used for video monitoring, etc.
The new Raspberry Pi 3 B + comes with a faster processor (19%) and memory (20%) than the previous model – the Pi 3.
If with the OpenCV library you can run detection and tracking applications on the previous Pi model, with the new Pi B + you can make more interesting applications using computer vision.
What I like about this kit is that some hardware can be replaced if it fails or broken. More details on what the kit contains can be found here.
