I am a complete beginner with only the coding experience of a typical AP Computer Science Java Course. I want to build a Rubik's Cube solving robot. Here is the inspiration for the project: https://blog.usejournal.com/from-zero-t ... ad3a2838cd
However, as I am extremely inexperienced in this aspect of the hobby/craft, I would appreciate any amount of help, especially the coding aspect of things.
In the article, the person has manually input the colors of the cube into a software he made, which then send the solving algorithm to the robot. Is there a way for me to use the Raspberry Pi Camera to scan all the faces and does the manual calculation on the board itself, as well as running the motors to execute the algorithm?
I assume the steps of the program will be:
1. raspberry pi cameras send all pictures of each face of the cube.
2. a program combines these pictures.
3. Using cube explorer's algorithm, http://kociemba.org/cube.htm, will return an algorithm, which the raspberry pi will execute by sending the steps to 6 steps motors, like the one in the website.
I have no idea how to execute any of these steps and would appreciate any help I can get.
