Trying to use the Raspberry Pi camera board to capture an image when it "sees" a reflective strip. Is this possible? How could I go about doing this?

    Welcome to the StackExchange! This question has nothing to do with Raspberry Pi, probably another computer-vision related area would get you more answers. – lenik Jun 7 '13 at 22:59

I will at least answer the RasPi part of your question.

Here is how to get images from the camera module into OpenCV: http://thinkrpi.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/opencv-and-camera-board-csi/

Be aware that you will be lucky to get above 5 FPS with this method, but it is probably as good as it will get with this method.

As for the CV part, you are asking in the wrong place.

    Computer Vision - you would need some kind of computer vision algorithm to detect the "reflective strip". – user8894 Sep 16 '13 at 15:15
