i ran MAX and set the requirements stated by kevin and im running the cmucam_gui.vi its starts up but i dont get any picture. is there something else i have to do or is there a problem with what im doing. or could it be that im using a usb to serial converter.
I don’t have LabView nearby, so my description won’t be verbatim.
You need to choose the proper COM port from the menu at the top left of the LabView application window, then click the thick right-pointing arrow in the toolbar to start the app running. To capture an image from the camera, click the obviously-named capture button just above the picture on the left of the screen. You’ll see a progress bar as the data is transferred, and the red light on the camera will flicker while it is transmitting the image.
