PX4FLOW Optical Flow Kit is an optical flow smart camera. This camera provides the image for setup purposes, but is not designed to capture images as a webcam.
It has a specialized high resolution downward pointing camera module and a 3-axis gyro that uses the ground texture and visible features to determine aircraft ground velocity.
PX4FLOW Optical Flow Kit has a native resolution of 752×480 pixels and calculates optical flow on a 4x binned and cropped area at 400 Hz, giving it a very high light sensitivity.
Unlike many mouse sensors, PX4FLOW also works indoors and in low outdoor light conditions without the need for an illumination LED. It can be freely reprogrammed to do any other basic, efficient low-level computer vision task.
