sensor — camera sensor

The sensor module is used for taking pictures.

Example usage:

import sensor

# Setup camera.
sensor.reset()
sensor.set_pixformat(sensor.RGB565)
sensor.set_framesize(sensor.QVGA)
sensor.skip_frames()

# Take pictures.
while(True):
    sensor.snapshot()

Functions

sensor.reset()

Initializes the camera sensor.

sensor.sleep(enable)

Puts the camera to sleep if enable is True. Otherwise, wakes it back up.

sensor.shutdown(enable)

Puts the camera into a lower power mode than sleep (but the camera must be reset on being woken up).

sensor.flush()

Copies whatever was in the frame buffer to the IDE. You should call this method to display the last image your OpenMV Cam takes if it’s not running a script with an infinite loop. Note that you’ll need to add a delay time of about a second after your script finishes for the IDE to grab the image from your camera. Otherwise, this method will have no effect.

sensor.snapshot()

Takes a picture using the camera and returns an image object.

The OpenMV Cam has two memory areas for images. The classical stack/heap area used for normal MicroPython processing can store small images within it’s heap. However, the MicroPython heap is only about ~100 KB which is not enough to store larger images. So, your OpenMV Cam has a secondary frame buffer memory area that stores images taken by sensor.snapshot(). Images are stored on the bottom of this memory area. Any memory that’s left over is then available for use by the frame buffer stack which your OpenMV Cam’s firmware uses to hold large temporary data structures for image processing algorithms.

If you need room to hold multiple frames you may “steal” frame buffer space by calling sensor.alloc_extra_fb().

If sensor.set_auto_rotation() is enabled this method will return a new already rotated image object.

Note

sensor.snapshot() may apply cropping parameters to fit the snapshot in the available RAM the pixformat, framesize, windowing, and framebuffers. The cropping parameters will be applied to maintain the aspect ratio and will stay until sensor.set_framesize() or sensor.set_windowing() are called.

sensor.skip_frames([n, time])

Takes n number of snapshots to let the camera image stabilize after changing camera settings. n is passed as normal argument, e.g. skip_frames(10) to skip 10 frames. You should call this function after changing camera settings.

Alternatively, you can pass the keyword argument time to skip frames for some number of milliseconds, e.g. skip_frames(time = 2000) to skip frames for 2000 milliseconds.

If neither n nor time is specified this method skips frames for 300 milliseconds.

If both are specified this method skips n number of frames but will timeout after time milliseconds.

Note

sensor.snapshot() may apply cropping parameters to fit the snapshot in the available RAM given the pixformat, framesize, windowing, and framebuffers. The cropping parameters will be applied to maintain the aspect ratio and will stay until sensor.set_framesize() or sensor.set_windowing() are called.

sensor.width()

Returns the sensor resolution width.

sensor.height()

Returns the sensor resolution height.

sensor.get_fb()

(Get Frame Buffer) Returns the image object returned by a previous call of sensor.snapshot(). If sensor.snapshot() had not been called before then None is returned.

sensor.get_id()

Returns the camera module ID.

sensor.alloc_extra_fb(width, height, pixformat)

Allocates another frame buffer for image storage from the frame buffer stack and returns an image object of width, height, and pixformat.

You may call this function as many times as you like as long as there’s memory available to allocate any number of extra frame buffers.

If pixformat is a number >= 4 then this will allocate a JPEG image. You can then do image.bytearray() to get byte level read/write access to the JPEG image.

Note

Creating secondary images normally requires creating them on the heap which has a limited amount of RAM… but, also gets fragmented making it hard to grab a large contigous memory array to store an image in. With this method you are able to allocate a very large memory array for an image instantly by taking space away from our frame buffer stack memory which we use for computer vision algorithms. That said, this also means you’ll run out of memory more easily if you try to execute more memory intensive machine vision algorithms like image.find_apriltags.

sensor.dealloc_extra_fb()

Deallocates the last previously allocated extra frame buffer. Extra frame buffers are stored in a stack like structure.

Note

Your OpenMV Cam has two memory areas. First, you have your classical .data/.bss/heap/stack memory area. The .data/.bss/heap regions are fixed by firmware. The stack then grows down until it hits the heap. Next, frame buffers are stored in a secondary memory region. Memory is liad out with the main frame buffer on the bottom and the frame buffer stack on the top. When sensor.snapshot() is called it fills the frame bufer from the bottom. The frame buffer stack is then able to use whatever is left over. This memory allocation method is extremely efficent for computer vision on microcontrollers.

sensor.set_pixformat(pixformat)

Sets the pixel format for the camera module.

If you are trying to take JPEG images with the OV2640 or OV5640 camera modules at high resolutions you should set the pixformat to sensor.JPEG. You can control the image quality then with sensor.set_quality().

sensor.get_pixformat()

Returns the pixformat for the camera module.

sensor.set_framesize(framesize)

Sets the frame size for the camera module.

sensor.get_framesize()

Returns the frame size for the camera module.

sensor.set_framerate(rate)

Sets the frame rate in hz for the camera module.

Note

set_framerate works by dropping frames received by the camera module to keep the frame rate equal to (or below) the rate you specify. By default the camera will run at the maximum frame rate. If implemented for the particular camera sensor then set_framerate will also reduce the camera sensor frame rate internally to save power and improve image quality by increasing the sensor exposure. set_framerate may conflict with set_auto_exposure on some cameras.

sensor.get_framerate()

Returns the frame rate in hz for the camera module.

sensor.set_windowing(roi)

Sets the resolution of the camera to a sub resolution inside of the current resolution. For example, setting the resolution to sensor.VGA and then the windowing to (120, 140, 200, 200) sets sensor.snapshot() to capture the 200x200 center pixels of the VGA resolution outputted by the camera sensor. You can use windowing to get custom resolutions. Also, when using windowing on a larger resolution you effectively are digital zooming.

roi is a rect tuple (x, y, w, h). However, you may just pass (w, h) and the roi will be centered on the frame. You may also pass roi not in parens.

This function will automatically handle cropping the passed roi to the framesize.

sensor.get_windowing()

Returns the roi tuple (x, y, w, h) previously set with sensor.set_windowing().

sensor.set_gainceiling(gainceiling)

Set the camera image gainceiling. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, or 128.

sensor.set_contrast(constrast)

Set the camera image contrast. -3 to +3.

sensor.set_brightness(brightness)

Set the camera image brightness. -3 to +3.

sensor.set_saturation(saturation)

Set the camera image saturation. -3 to +3.

sensor.set_quality(quality)

Set the camera image JPEG compression quality. 0 - 100.

Note

Only for the OV2640/OV5640 cameras.

sensor.set_colorbar(enable)

Turns color bar mode on (True) or off (False). Defaults to off.

sensor.set_auto_gain(enable[, gain_db=-1[, gain_db_ceiling]])

enable turns auto gain control on (True) or off (False). The camera will startup with auto gain control on.

If enable is False you may set a fixed gain in decibels with gain_db.

If enable is True you may set the maximum gain ceiling in decibels with gain_db_ceiling for the automatic gain control algorithm.

Note

You need to turn off white balance too if you want to track colors.

sensor.get_gain_db()

Returns the current camera gain value in decibels (float).

sensor.set_auto_exposure(enable[, exposure_us])

enable turns auto exposure control on (True) or off (False). The camera will startup with auto exposure control on.

If enable is False you may set a fixed exposure time in microseconds with exposure_us.

Note

Camera auto exposure algorithms are pretty conservative about how much they adjust the exposure value by and will generally avoid changing the exposure value by much. Instead, they change the gain value alot of deal with changing lighting.

sensor.get_exposure_us()

Returns the current camera exposure value in microseconds (int).

sensor.set_auto_whitebal(enable[, rgb_gain_db])

enable turns auto white balance on (True) or off (False). The camera will startup with auto white balance on.

If enable is False you may set a fixed gain in decibels for the red, green, and blue channels respectively with rgb_gain_db.

Note

You need to turn off gain control too if you want to track colors.

sensor.get_rgb_gain_db()

Returns a tuple with the current camera red, green, and blue gain values in decibels ((float, float, float)).

sensor.set_hmirror(enable)

Turns horizontal mirror mode on (True) or off (False). Defaults to off.

sensor.get_hmirror()

Returns if horizontal mirror mode is enabled.

sensor.set_vflip(enable)

Turns vertical flip mode on (True) or off (False). Defaults to off.

sensor.get_vflip()

Returns if vertical flip mode is enabled.

sensor.set_transpose(enable)

Turns transpose mode on (True) or off (False). Defaults to off.

  • vflip=False, hmirror=False, transpose=False -> 0 degree rotation
  • vflip=True, hmirror=False, transpose=True -> 90 degree rotation
  • vflip=True, hmirror=True, transpose=False -> 180 degree rotation
  • vflip=False, hmirror=True, transpose=True -> 270 degree rotation
sensor.get_transpose()

Returns if transpose mode is enabled.

sensor.set_auto_rotation(enable)

Turns auto rotation mode on (True) or off (False). Defaults to off.

Note

This function only works when the OpenMV Cam has an imu installed and is enabled automatically.

sensor.get_auto_rotation()

Returns if auto rotation mode is enabled.

Note

This function only works when the OpenMV Cam has an imu installed and is enabled automatically.

sensor.set_framebuffers(count)

Sets the number of frame buffers used to receive image data. By default your OpenMV Cam will automatically try to allocate the maximum number of frame buffers it can possibly allocate without using more than 1/2 of the available frame buffer RAM at the time of allocation to ensure the best performance. Automatic reallocation of frame buffers occurs whenever you call sensor.set_pixformat(), sensor.set_framesize(), and sensor.set_windowing().

sensor.snapshot() will automatically handle switching active frame buffers in the background. From your code’s perspective there is only ever 1 active frame buffer even though there might be more than 1 frame buffer on the system and another frame buffer reciving data in the background.

If count is:

1 - Single Buffer Mode (you may also pass sensor.SINGLE_BUFFER)
In single buffer mode your OpenMV Cam will allocate one frame buffer for receiving images. When you call sensor.snapshot() that framebuffer will be used to receive the image and the camera driver will continue to run. In the advent you call sensor.snapshot() again before the first line of the next frame is received your code will execute at the frame rate of the camera. Otherwise, the image will be dropped.
2 - Double Buffer Mode (you may also pass sensor.DOUBLE_BUFFER)
In double buffer mode your OpenMV Cam will allocate two frame buffers for receiving images. When you call sensor.snapshot() one framebuffer will be used to receive the image and the camera driver will continue to run. When the next frame is received it will be stored in the other frame bufer. In the advent you call sensor.snapshot() again before the first line of the next frame after is received your code will execute at the frame rate of the camera. Otherwise, the image will be dropped.
3 - Triple Buffer Mode (you may also pass sensor.TRIPLE_BUFFER)
In triple buffer mode your OpenMV Cam will allocate three buffers for receiving images. In this mode there is always a frame buffer to store the received image to in the background resulting in the highest performance and lowest latency for reading the latest received frame. No frames are ever dropped in this mode. The next frame read by sensor.snapshot() is the last captured frame by the sensor driver (e.g. if you are reading slower than the camera frame rate then the older frame in the possible frames available is skipped).

Regarding the reallocation above, triple buffering is tried first, then double buffering, and if these both fail to fit in 1/2 of the available frame buffer RAM then single buffer mode is used.

You may pass a value of 4 or greater to put the sensor driver into video FIFO mode where received images are stored in a frame buffer FIFO with count buffers. This is useful for video recording to an SD card which may randomly block your code from writing data when the SD card is performing house-keeping tasks like pre-erasing blocks to write data to.

Note

On frame drop (no buffers available to receive the next frame) all frame buffers are automatically cleared except the active frame buffer. This is done to ensure sensor.snapshot() returns current frames and not frames from long ago.

Fun fact, you can pass a value of 100 or so on OpenMV Cam’s with SDRAM for a huge video fifo. If you then call snapshot slower than the camera frame rate (by adding pyb.delay()) you’ll get slow-mo effects in OpenMV IDE. However, you will also see the above policy effect of resetting the frame buffer on a frame drop to ensure that frames do not get too old. If you want to record slow-mo video just record video normally to the SD card and then play the video back on a desktop machine slower than it was recorded.

sensor.get_framebuffers()

Returns the current number of frame buffers allocated.

sensor.disable_full_flush([disable])

If disable is True then automatic framebuffer flushing mentioned in set_framebuffers is disabled. This removes any time limit on frames in the frame buffer fifo. For example, if you set the number of frame buffers to 30 and set the frame rate to 30 you can now precisely record 1 second of video from the camera without risk of frame loss.

If this function is called with no arguments it returns if automatic flushing is disabled. By default automatic flushing on frame drop is enabled to clear out stale frames.

Note

snapshot starts the frame capture process which will continue to capture frames until there is no space to hold a frame at which point the frame capture process stops. The process always stops when there is no space to hold the next frame.

sensor.set_lens_correction(enable, radi, coef)

enable True to enable and False to disable (bool). radi integer radius of pixels to correct (int). coef power of correction (int).

sensor.set_vsync_callback(cb)

Registers callback cb to be executed (in interrupt context) whenever the camera module generates a new frame (but, before the frame is received).

cb takes one argument and is passed the current state of the vsync pin after changing.

sensor.set_frame_callback(cb)

Registers callback cb to be executed (in interrupt context) whenever the camera module generates a new frame and the frame is ready to be read via sensor.snapshot().

cb takes no arguments.

Use this to get an interrupt to schedule reading a frame later with micropython.schedule().

sensor.get_frame_available()

Returns True if a frame is available to read by calling sensor.snapshot().

sensor.ioctl(...)

Executes a sensor specific method:

  • sensor.IOCTL_SET_READOUT_WINDOW - Pass this enum followed by a rect tuple (x, y, w, h) or a size tuple (w, h).
    • This IOCTL allows you to control the readout window of the camera sensor which dramatically improves the frame rate at the cost of field-of-view.
    • If you pass a rect tuple (x, y, w, h) the readout window will be positoned on that rect tuple. The rect tuple’s x/y position will be adjusted so the size w/h fits. Additionally, the size w/h will be adjusted to not be smaller than the framesize.
    • If you pass a size tuple (w, h) the readout window will be centered given the w/h. Additionally, the size w/h will be adjusted to not be smaller than the framesize.
    • This IOCTL is extremely helpful for increasing the frame rate on higher resolution cameras like the OV2640/OV5640.
  • sensor.IOCTL_GET_READOUT_WINDOW - Pass this enum for sensor.ioctl to return the current readout window rect tuple (x, y, w, h). By default this is (0, 0, maximum_camera_sensor_pixel_width, maximum_camera_sensor_pixel_height).
  • sensor.IOCTL_SET_TRIGGERED_MODE - Pass this enum followed by True or False set triggered mode for the MT9V034 sensor.
  • sensor.IOCTL_GET_TRIGGERED_MODE - Pass this enum for sensor.ioctl to return the current triggered mode state.

  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_SET_ATTRIBUTE - Pass this enum to set a FLIR Lepton SDK attribute.
    • The first argument is the 16-bit attribute ID to set (set the FLIR Lepton SDK).
    • The second argument is a MicroPython byte array of bytes to write (should be a multiple of 16-bits). Create the byte array using struct following the FLIR Lepton SDK.
  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_GET_ATTRIBUTE - Pass this enum to get a FLIR Lepton SDK attribute.
    • The first argument is the 16-bit attribute ID to set (set the FLIR Lepton SDK).

  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_GET_FPA_TEMPERATURE - Pass this enum to get the FLIR Lepton FPA Temp in celsius.
  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_GET_AUX_TEMPERATURE - Pass this enum to get the FLIR Lepton AUX Temp in celsius.
  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_SET_MEASUREMENT_MODE - Pass this followed by True or False to turn off automatic gain control on the FLIR Lepton and force it to output an image where each pixel value represents an exact temperature value in celsius.
  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_GET_MEASUREMENT_MODE - Pass this to get if measurment mode is enabled or not.
  • sensor.IOCTL_LEPTON_SET_MEASUREMENT_RANGE - Pass this when measurement mode is enabled to set the temperature range in celsius for the mapping operation. The temperature image returned by the FLIR Lepton will then be clamped between these min and max values and then scaled to values between 0 to 255. To map a pixel value back to a temperature (on a grayscale image) do: ((pixel * (max_temp_in_celsius - min_temp_in_celsius)) / 255.0) + min_temp_in_celsius.
