Skills Overview

In addition to being able to interface a Raspberry Pi with the Pi Camera and using OpenCV with Aruco tags. Here are some of the skills you'll need to complete this project:

The Challenge

The objective of the Cornell University ECE 5725 final project is to design a platform that uses the tools learned throughout the semester and is based on the Raspberry Pi (RPi) platform. It must cost less than $100 to make, excluding the price of an RPi, PiTFT screen, charger, SD cards, and case. With these guidelines, we set out to design, manufacture and develop software to control a Pixar inspired lamp. Our goal was to have a user place an Aruco marker on any object, with the limit of nine objects, and have a lamp shine as much light as possible on that object. They could also change which object to track if there is more than one Aruco marker. Finally, we wanted to make this as compact as possible to not take up workspace.

Thank you for creating this project, Dkrovvidi. Let me know if you need help promoting it.

The $100 price stipulation really adds another layer to the project! What is the effective distance that the camera can recognize the Aruco markers?
