How do I read the output into a Python program?

0 votes

I want to use a built-in Jevois module (object tracking) and get the results (x,y coordinates and size) in a python program on the client side. I want to do this real-time, so the camera feeds a stream of coordinates and the python program can use those to make decisions. I will be using this to drive a robot.

I am confused about how to get started - can anyone provide a simple starter program that lets me read the jevois output in a Python program? I'll have the camera directly plugged into the linux box running the Python program.

Thanks for asking! We just posted a tutorial for that:


This should provide you with a start which you can modify for your own use. Also see http://jevois.org/tutorials/UserColorTracking.html for Python code that sends commands to JeVois.
