Light Sensor

Postby geiwojiaxue » Fri Sep 16, 2011 8:06 am

How can I differentiate a black circle, a black blob and a black blob in a black circle
using light sensor?

Anyone get some ideas?

If you have a movable light sensor, then scan the entire sample and store the values, say in an array. Let the value for black be 0. If your array has only 0's, you have a blob. If your arrays have 0 only in the start and the end, you have a circle. Not too sure about the blob in the circle, but if you have continuous 0's separated in 2 places by non zeroes, that is three 'groups' of zeroes, then maybe you have a blob in a circle.

Can't you search the array from the start to end, then If the array has 0's at start 1's followed by more 0's to tell if it's a blob in a circle?

Eg: 0000011100000011100000
