    Intel Galileo gen 1 - Connecting a USB camera

    Fabrício

      Hi,

       

      I'm starting to use Intel Galileo gen 1 and I'm trying to develop a computer vision project. My idea is to connect a webcam and use its pictures to recognize some colored patterns (or something else, I haven't decide it yet).

      I'm currently running a Debian Image, but I'm also open to suggestions about other linux images.

      So, my first doubts are:

      • Do I really need OpenCV in this project?
      • How do I install it? Or how can I do a cross-compilation and then install it?
      • How do I access the camera and take pictures?

       

      Regards,

       

      Fabrício.
