fiducials are optical patterns that vision systems find easy to spot when placed in the environment. The markers are used for ground truth testing.

Instead, visual-inertial SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping), perform a dense volumetric mapping.

USB cameras

USB cameras have the advantage of a longer chord to separate the camera from the Pi case.

USB cameras manufacturered for PCs are a good entry camera because they can be obtained cheaply in swapmeets, GoodWill, and other second-hand stores.

They are lower resolution.

CSI camera

Get started with the Raspberry Pi camera module, using Python and picamera. You’ll take still pictures, record video, and apply image effects.

http://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface provides software to use cameras connected to the Raspberry Pi board via it CSI interface. It does not work with USB cameras.

When a camera recognizes movement, it can trigger recording.

PIR (Passive IfraRed)

Pi Lapse is a simple Python Script for the Raspberry Pi that takes photos at regular intervals.
