POB Technology

 

POB-8003 -- Bot Eye -- US$259.00

 

A real brain for your robot, the POB-Eye is a color camera mudule which allows you to do real time shapes recognition. With LEGO-POB-Bridge, you can interface with LEGO NXT.

The POB-Eye is programmable in C, Java and Basic. An easy to use software SDK, with compilers and shapes recognition tools, is also provided.

The POB-Eye is the heart of our modular architecture.

More than giving a calculating power to your bot, which can mange the POB modules (for example), the POB-Eye has been designed to bring a real time color vision to your robot.

Its technical capabilities allows to do real time shape recognition and driving all your robot pieces by the POB-Eye's Bus.

Some application examples :

Shape recognition
Drive your robot (robosapiens, robonova.)
Manage POB's addon modules
Manage I2C normalized modules



Features :

The user himself programs the module (in C, Basic or JAVA) :
The POB-EYE is provided with an easy to use SDK. The user doesn't have to develop the shape recognition functions, the native function "IdentifyForm" allows to recognize the shapes in front of the camera.

As well as a PC can do, with the I/O used as data and addresses bus, the POB-Eye can communicate with different devices (see POB-Proto, POB-LCD128, POB-Servo..).

A complete documentation, illustrated with full examples helps the user's first implementations.

The POB-Eye is built with a ARM 7TDMI processor running at 60Mhz and with a CMOS color camera :
Flash Memory 128 K
o Ram : 64K
o Input/Output : 15
o Bus I2C
o UART
o Image size : 88x120 pixels (32Ko)
o Color Image (1 octet per color)
o Power : 6v to 9v, 2A maximum
o Logical signals voltage : 3.3v (5v allowed)
o Logical signals current : 10mA maximum
o Dimensions : 49.5x64.3 mm

Technical Details

Because it was designed to be the leading point of the system, the
customer has complete freedom in the implementation of the final 
application. Its technical features allow the POB-EYE to recognize 
patterns as well as directing the robot.

In addition to the 0V and supply voltage, the I2C bus and the 15 
input/output are on the HE10 connector. It allows the user to 
connect an extension board to the POB-EYE module. This 
connector gives access to the I2C bus (which has already its 
pull up resistance). In addition to the I/O, there is the +5V, the 
Ground and the POBEYE power supply.

Because POB-EYE has 15 digitals I/O, POB-TECHOLOGY made a
bus similar to a PCI bus used in a personal computer. With that 
bus, POB-EYE can communicate with several slave devices faster
than any serial protocol like the I2C bus.

A powerful and easy to use SDK is included with the 
POB-EYE. There is no need for the user to program 
algorithms for pattern recognition but simply to use 
pre-existing function. The so called function "IdentifyForm" will
identify the patterns given in front of the camera.

POB-Pattern allows you to create a dictionary of forms. This
dictionary allows you to find forms starting from the images
of the POB-EYE camera.

However, the user can create his own functions, hence there's a free access 
to the  RGB, HSL and YUV  components from the CMOS sensor.
