Basic breakout board for the TEMT6000 Ambient Light Sensor. Only what you need, nothing you don't. Sensor acts like a transistor - the greater the incoming light, the higher the analog voltage on the signal pin.
The Pixy2 CMUcam5 is smaller, faster and more capable than the original Pixy. Like its predecessor, the Pixy2 can learn to detect objects that you teach it, just by pressing a button. Additionally, the Pixy2 has new algorithms that detect and track lines for use with line-following robots. With these new algorithms, you can detect intersections and “road signs” as well. The road signs can tell your robot what to do, such as turn left, turn right, slow down, etc. The best part is that the Pixy2 does all of this at 60 frames-per-second, so your robot can be fast, too!
The EX8029 Stereo Camera from eYs3D is a depth-map imager controller and patterned IR illuminator capable of both color and point map output modes. Thanks to its dual cameras, this Stereo Camera is ideally used in applications involving motion and gesture control, field mapping, and 3D scanning. The best part about this module is the fact that it has been designed to be as straight forward and easy to use as possible for a stereo camera. Simply plug in the included USB 3.0 cable download the required files and start seeing things through the eyes of your new camera!
The Intel® RealSense Depth Camera has been designed to equip devices with the ability to see, understand, interact with, and learn from their environment. The D415 includes ready-to-use cameras that can be easily added to your existing prototypes via USB, Depth Modules that can be integrated directly into product designs, Vision Processors and Vision Processor Cards to process the raw data from the RealSense Cameras, and Intel® RealSense SDK (Software Development Kit), an open source, cross platform Development Suite including libraries, rappers, sample code, and tools.
The EX8036 Stereo Camera from eYs3D is a high-end imager controller and patterned IR illuminator with a global shutter capable of both color and depth-map video modes. Thanks to its dual cameras, this Stereo Camera is ideally used in applications involving VR/AR, people and thing counting, and obstacle avoidance. The best part about this module is the fact that it has been designed to be as straight forward and easy to use as possible for a stereo camera. Simply plug in the included USB 3.0 cable download the required files and start seeing things through the eyes of your new camera!
The SparkFun Triad Spectroscopy Sensor is a powerful optical inspection sensor also known as a spectrophotometer. Three AS7265x spectral sensors are combined alongside a visible, UV, and IR LEDs to illuminate and test various surfaces for light spectroscopy. The Triad is made up of three sensors; the AS72651, the AS72652, and the AS72653 and can detect the light from 410nm (UV) to 940nm (IR). In addition, 18 individual light frequencies can be measured with precision down to 28.6 nW/cm2 and accuracy of +/-12%. Utilizing our handy Qwiic system, no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your system. However, we still have broken out 0.1"-spaced pins in case you prefer to use a breadboard.
The VEML6075 UV Light Sensor Breakout is SparkFun’s latest ultraviolet sensing solution. The VEML6075 implements a simple photodiode to measure the levels of UVA (320-400nm) and UVB (280-320nm) radiation. With this breakout, you will be able to read the intensity of these types of light in irradiance, and from there, calculate the UV Index. Utilizing our handy Qwiic system, no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your system. However, we still have broken out 0.1"-spaced pins in case you prefer to use a breadboard.
The WFV3918 from Amp'ed is a small footprint, low cost RF video module, supporting 720p video resolution, both live streaming and SD card storage, with up to 300m range line-of-sight (5Ghz band). Easily accessible via the VLC mobile app, the WFV3918 can be used to transmit video and audio remotely from your next project!
The JeVois Camera is a low cost, all-in-one 1.3MP machine vision camera. With an on board quad core CPU and MicroSD slot, all computer vision algorithms run on the device itself and can interface to computers or other devices such as Arduinos via USB or serial connection. At just 1.7 cubic inches and 17g, this sensor is one of the smallest TensorFlow enabled, deep learning AI, smart camera on the market today. With the added ability to run most popular machine vision frameworks (Open CV 4.0.0, Caffe, Darknet), you will have plenty of options when it comes to deciding how you want to operate your new camera!
Edge computing is here! You've probably heard of this latest entry to the long lineage of tech buzzwords like "IoT," "LoRa," and "cloud" before it, but what is “the edge” and why does it matter? The cloud is impressively powerful but all-the-time connection requires power and connectivity that may not be available. Edge computing handles discrete tasks such as determining if someone said "yes" and responds accordingly. The audio analysis is done at the edge rather than on the web. This dramatically reduces costs and complexity while limiting potential data privacy leaks.
