Is a Pixy camera system able to react on a whole or part of an outside picture to sense left-right movement of that picture using that movement to eventually steer a boat.
The camera would be positioned on a small boat and “look” in the direction (heading) the boat is traveling. The only requirement is to keep the picture in the middle and use the offset (when the heading changes, e.g. due wind) to steer the boat to the original heading. I’ve been trying to do this with a magnetometer (Bosch BNO055) but this is unusable. GPS also due to the slow speed of the boat.
The steering is done via an Arduino and hydraulic pump. Knob steering with a potentiometer works fine.
