Type definitions for working with machine vision cameras.

This crate aims to be a lowest common denominator for working with images from machine vision cameras from companies such as Basler, FLIR, and AVT.

  • Can be compiled without standard library support (no_std).
  • Includes strongly-typed pixel formats in the pixel_format module (e.g. RGB8 and Mono8) to ensure correct API use.

Additionally several traits are defined to describe image data:

  • ImageData defines the basics, such as image dimensions and the data buffer.
  • ImageMutData is implemented for images with mutable data.
  • Stride is implemented for images with strided data (i.e. each image row is encoded with exactly the same number of bytes, which may including padding).

This crate is used extensively in Strand Camera.

Potential further improvements

The list of pixel formats variants is currently limited rather limited. Please submit an issue or, better, pull request for any additions needed.

We could also address the question of how endian-ness and packed-ness are handled. Currently, these are not specified.
