I have a project using PiCam to observe the conveyor in our plant because sometime it was stucked.Is it possible to use PiCam to detect when the conveyor is stucked and stop ? I researched many projects on google but there are only Picam motion detect security system.How about detect "motion stop" ? Thanks guys !
If you want to detect no motion just keep looking for motion and if you don't find any for some time period signal a no motion alarm.
Bear in mind that an empty section of conveyor that is moving might not be detected as motion because it looks much the same . Also, there may still be motion detected when the conveyor is stopped due to changing lighting, or other changes in the scene e.g. people or machinery moving near the conveyor, flickering screens, blinking lights etc.
I don't think a camera is a good choice for this. Use a more direct and rugged sensor.
