It would be great to be able to access a stream from the camera on the local area network. Having it go to the cloud and back would be cool too, but is a nice-to-have rather than essential.
Here’s the use case: I’d like to use a external Python app with deep learning to identify and track the plants as the gantry moves. This would run on a PC on the local WiFi/ Ethernet network and also access the REST API and message broker.
I assume getting the camera to stream locally should be relatively easy, assuming FarmbotOS is running on top of a Linux distro of some sort.
I’ve worked on a similar agritech project for my PhD: a lettuce harvesting robot. I’d like to apply some of this tech to my new genesis XL!
Here’s the paper, for anyone interested:
