How can I acquire images using a Dino-Lite camera via USB in MATLAB R2013b?

Best Answer

  • The Dino-Lite camera is a USB based camera, and will work like any other OS Generic camera with MATLAB.
    To use this camera in MATLAB, follow the steps listed below:
    1. Have the Image Acquisition Toolbox installed in MATLAB.
    2. You have to then install the "OS Generic Video Interface" support package using the Support Package Installer in MATLAB which will provide the drivers to communicate with your camera.
    Steps to launch the Support Package Installer can be found in the following link:
    3. You can then use the 'imaqtool' command to acquire images from the camera. More information on this tool can be found in the following links:
