Processing Remote Video (ESP32) Using OpenCV

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is having a nice day. I’m currently brainstorming about a future project and wanted to know if this is possible or if it’s been done.

I want to make a wireless IP camera (ESP32) that moves and track objects. The ESP32 is just a micro-controller with no real processing power. So has anyone seen a project where the video from something like an ESP is processed on another computer?

For example, I want a Desktop PC to process the video stream and then from that processing manipulate servos on a micro controller.

I apologize if this isn’t in the right category. I know this question bleeds into hardware a bit. But has anyone seen an example of the above? Or better yet a tutorial for it?
