Can I take a screenshot and send it when a particular object is detected using aurdino or raspberry Pi

What I want to do is whenever jevois detects an object in the video frame, it should take a screenshot and sent the image over a Raspberry Pi to an email

The easiest is to have your raspberry pi get all detection pictures, and then it will decide which ones to send over email (as opposed to JeVois deciding to only send some pictures to the pi). Then see here:



So you write a python script on your raspberry pi which does this:

- open video capture from JeVois using OpenCV VideoCapture with the correct resolution and frame rate

- loop forever:

    - grab a frame

    - receive serial messages from JeVois

    - if serial message corresponds to desired object, email the frame

Thanks this was a much easier way than using Jevois to take a picture and send it across to the raspberri
