We've had a lot of inquiries about our ArduEye system, plus we've just prototyped a smaller, completely self-contained ArduEye (more on this in another post). So I figure it makes sense to discuss what is actually possible with one of these devices. True, the ATmega328 processing engine of an Arduino is limited compared to more advanced DSP, but the reality is that for many applications you really don't need a whole lot of pixels. If you can get by with specs of the '328 (16MHz as an…
