In this post I’m going to demonstrate how to do test some computer vision techniques using the video feed from a GoPro Hero 3 directly towards a Raspberry Pi 3.
I’m using a special bridge that has a HDMI input and as an output goes to the CSI camera port of the Raspberry Pi, so, basically as easy as using a RPI camera…
This is actually not a very common technique to do, the bridge is from the company Auvidea, and the model is the B101.
And the best part is that its plug and play. I just install it on my RPI, connected the CSI cable to the camera port, turn my RPI on, turn the GoPro on, and run “raspivid -t 0” and voilà, you will see the video on the screen!!!
After that is just question of using my computer vision repository: https://github.com/alduxvm/rpi-opencv, and start testing the different scripts… As usual, I created a video for you guys to see it working, take a look here:
