This allows a Propeller to control the C3088 camera (a.k.a. the camera on the CMUCam 1 through 3) directly. Output can be displayed in ASCII!

[originally posted by antfriend on 2010-10-18 01:31:58] This is a great object! It got me running with my CMU Cam relatively quickly and easily! Thank you! Now I'm working on extending it to include frame dumps. And for that I'd also like to figure out how to increase the speed above 9600.

[originally posted by m.k.borri on 2012-01-05 20:21:00]  Can you post the schematic you used to interface the c3088 with the propeller?
[originally posted by m.k.borri on 2011-02-09 07:47:42] Thanks to you! I got frame dumps done since then and have been using this for motion tracking. Kinda scary to see a servo pan-tilt mount point at you :) 
[originally posted by Anonymous on 2012-01-05 20:17:46] Where can i find the schematic to interface this camera with the parallax propeller? can you also provide the schematic for it? any help would be appreciated, as im heading for my semester projects deadline.
