Hi, I am working on a robot. I plan on having an MCU interact with an IMU and some wheel encoders and it’s important to be able to sync this information with the start of a camera frame. Basically, I either need to slave a camera trigger to the MCU or I need the MCU to be able to register when a frame starts being recorded.
There are a number of color cameras for the PI that offer this type of functionality:
Which have official or unofficial Jetson Nano drivers, these camera modules also provide additional input/output pins in regards to vsync and XVS which should be able to be used to indicate the start of a capture frame.
Do these existing nano drivers allow you to program the modules to either 1. use an external trigger or 2. indicate the start of a frame grab?
Synchronization is a huge, massive problem to using these systems,
