Need help connecting JeVois wirelessly to an iPhone

0 votes
The project I am planning to make is as follows:

JeVois recognizes and compares a face to images in the microSD card, if it's a match, the JeVois would communicate with an iPhone app and Siri would pronounce the name of the individual through code in the iPhone app.

What is the best way to go around this? I have face recognition and comparison algorithms running through OpenCV, and I can get the name out of the image. I am stuck at the stage where I need to communicate with the iPhone from JeVois.

What is the easiest way to connect my JeVois (wirelessly or with least amount of wires, as the camera is supposed to sit on a person's glasses) to the app? I have an Atmega, is it possible with it? And if so, how?

Any tutorials online would be greatly appreciated!

Nice project! The easiest would probably be a Raspberry Pi or similar with WIFI running a smally python script that listens to /dev/ttyACM0 (serial-over-USB port of JeVois) and sends to WIFI. Since those boards are usually too weak to power JeVois, make sure you use a Y-cable with the power-only end plugged into a stable power source.

Or maybe an ESP-12F or similar connected to the 4-pin serial of JeVois?

Do I need to connect the raspberry Pi to the JeVois? Or can I just wireless allocate the Raspberry Pi to listen to that port?

I need a wireless solution to transfer data from JeVois to my app, if that makes sense.

Thanks for the help!
This is a nice project.
Even though I am not yet familiar with OpenCV I would be interested to get a tutorial to connect the JeVois camera to an ESP-12 E or F, running as a web server.
Then We should display the image coming from JeVois to the smartphone.
then using App Inventor we should be able to see whatever JeVois sees.
Any example?
