This review is from: Pixy (CMUcam5) Smart Vision Sensor - Object Tracking Camera for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black (Electronics)
This is a great little system for embedded image processing.
The camera interfaces easily to Arduino with an included cable. It recognizes up to seven "trainable" colors. It provides the x,y coordinates of the center of the recognized object, as well as the width and the height. Left/right is 0 to 319 and up/down is 0 to 199.
Within two days of receiving this, I had built a "home charging station" for my robot. The Pixy camera enables my robot to find its way there . . just search for Pixy Camera Robot to find more details on how to make it work.
If you want to try machine vision with a minimal learning curve and minimal cost, this is certainly the way to go.
