|In this paper we describe a functioning prototype of a simple low cost system which we have constructed and can perform a simple color blob tracking task at 16.7 frames per second. This system utilizes a low cost CMOS color camera module which eliminates the need for a separate frame grabber and all processing is performed by a high speed, low cost microcontroller. The resulting system makes it possible to utilize simple color vision algorithms in applications, like small mobile robotics, where a traditional vision system consisting of a separate camera, frame grabber, and high speed computer would be prohibitive.|
