We've got a lot of news today, so, here we go:
MacroFab has informed me that 2.5K OV7725 sensors will be in their hands on July 10th. They've already got all the other parts necessary to make OpenMV Cams in stock and we expect them to start manufacturing more or less by next week. Woot!
In related news, we've already received ~800 pre-orders of OpenMV Cam M7s. So, we're only going to have 1.7K OpenMV Cams actually in stock. Finally, in unrelated news, UFACTORY's order of 1200 OpenMV Cams were delivered too. So, if you bought a uARM pro you should be getting one with an OpenMV Cam M7!
Kwabena recently moved to Oakland CA and is now participating in the DYI Robocars Meetup. To enable the OpenMV Cam to compete we're adding new functionality for the track.
Linear Regression support for line following
RAW video record and playback for tuning algorithms
Finally, blob tracking right out of the box should let you easily compete
