Hello all!

So I've picked up a raspberry pi, as well as an arduino and a copy of OpenCV. My programming knowledge only extends to making robots on the arduino. I wanted to know if there is a tutorial I can follow that would show me how to basically hook up a USB camera to the raspberry pi, do some object detection, then send inputs off to the arduino. I tried looking at the tutorials on the official openCV site, but they were a little beyond me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can see all the functions you need for your input and output here. You can also use this tutorial (it is about working with video).

Object detection, on the other hand, is one of the most complicated tasks in computer vision, especially for absolute beginner. It can come in countless amount of forms and has countless amount of solutions. To get advice for it you have to be more specific with what kind of object detection you need (preferably with some images).
