Webcam connected to myRIO USB port.
In this project, students use myRIO to acquire and process image data from a webcam. This includes configuring the webcam and acquiring and processing single images and video streams. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the webcam, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
