I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


No. You can use the ezrobot camera though.


There's no way to get the video from the ezb-b translated and into EZ-Builder.


Thanks DJ and Technopro for fast response...


I2c is too slow as well. It's max speed is only a few hundred hz which will only give you a few frames a second anyway
