Designed as an open-source MicroPython powered machine vision camera, the OpenMV Cam H7 offers up a unique camera for low-power real-time applications. Aiming to be the "Arduino of Machine Vision," the OpenMV Cam H7 brings machine vision close to hobbyists and makers. Driven by Python, this machine vision camera makes it easy to run various algorithms to detect faces, track colors, and control I/O pins in the real world.

While the OpenMV Cam H7 is capable of performing a plethora of tasks, users generally purchase the open-source machine vision camera for its color-tracking abilities. Easily hitting 80 FPS, the camera is a perfect accessory for building a DIY Robocar.

The camera itself features an ARM Cortex-M7 processor, 1 MB of onboard RAM, 2 MB of onboard FLASH, and a JPEF compressor.
