Infrared JPEG Color Camera Serial UART TTL Level - Edison Library

IndexUpdates
  • Now you activate and deactivate the Power Saving Mode
  • Now you can Change the BAUD of the camara; it does not increase the performance significantly, but it is available and may be useful
  • Now you can Connect your Camera directly to the Edison mini-breakout board without the need of the Arduino Board!
  • Now you can Change the compression Ratio
    • I tried to change the ratio in the range specified by the manufacturer but the camera refuses to do so; anyways the option to change it is there altough the camera will just ignore it.
  • Check out the RUN_EXAMPLE.txt so you can take a look at what you should be seeing when you run the main.c sample code
  • Now you can get the 3 available resolutions 640x480, 320x240 and 160x120
  • Now you can export the content to a buffer or directly to a jpeg file
  • You can print your buffer to a jpeg file
  • I will soon explain the Returns of the functions; in simple words, if you get a 0 return, everything's fine. I will add this information soon.

Arduino Board Setup

In order to make this code work with your Arduino Breakout Board, you will need to consider several steps:

  • Even though you will use your Arduino Board, you will program it using the Linux Terminal
    • The easy way to activate the Serial Port to communicate with the camera is running this Arduino Sketch:

void setup() { Serial1.begin(38400);</...
