I am using a Nexys 4 DDR for a school project. I am building a system that uses a video camera to detect and track human motion.
1. Which port should I use to connect the camera? The immediate one available on the board is the USB host connector, but is it possible to use it to connect a camera?
2. Are there any PMODs available to connect a camera module?
3. Any recommendations for a specific camera model to use for this project? Basically, I need to take the video input, perform some filtering to recognize face and arms, downsample the video and store it in a memory buffer, and output the video real-time to a VGA monitor.
