The ClusterHat goes Stereo!

Yesterday I described my first experiments with the Raspberry Pi ClusterHat.

I've had a play done a bit more serious research since then and I now have two Pi cam2s connected to two of the Pi zeros. Now I can take stereo photos!

The first pair of images aren't of great artistic merit, but they prove things work.

Morten and I plan to build on this using APL to convolve the two images in order to determine the distance from the cameras of each pixel in the scene. Once the ClusterHat and PiCams are mounted on a mobile base we hope we'll have a mobile robot with stereo depth perception.
