how to detect a laser pointer spot (650 nm) using jevois ?

I need to track a laser pointer spot on different backgrounds. Tried with object tracker in HSV but no setting seems to give reliable results. Is there a different way to that ?

You could try coding your own python module to detect your laser spot.

Using cv2.inRange you can detect red blobs in the camera image. Have a look here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42840526/opencv-python-red-ball-detection-and-tracking and https://www.pyimagesearch.com/2015/09/14/ball-tracking-with-opencv/ to put you on rails.
