What an amazing set of products the Luxonis/DepthAI team has built. I’m so excited about what you are making easy!
I have a question about which product I should buy — and I’d love your input please.
Goal: I want to do license plate and car recognition — on device.
The hardware will be 50 feet away from where the cars stop at a stop sign.
In looking through the offerings -- I am trying to understand which device the DepthAI/Luxonis thinks would be best.
Option 1: DepthAI: USB3C + RPI HQ Camera
If I went this route, a few questions:
Q1: Do I need to have a RPI HQ Camera -- or would I be able to add a different lens to the 1x Color 12MP Modular Camera? If I can add a lens - what would you recommend?
Q2: Does the DepthAI: USB3C offer the same vehicle / license plate detection that I see offered here:
Option 2: OpenCV AI Kit (OAK)
First -- I'm very impressed with OAK!
Q1: If I went this route, am I able to add a different lens to the OAK-1 or OAK-D?
Q2: Which OAK device would you recommend? In reading the feature differences -- it looks like the OAK-1 might be better for my use case.
Thank you so much for creating this products!
