Go to Post Earlier this week it took me a little bit too long to realize that the reason my pen wasn't writing correctly was that it was actually a screwdriver. I'm going to have to ask for a few nights of honest sleep before signing off on a report. - EricVanWyk [more]

Re: Wiring two cameras

Now you know how far away you are. Pivot until the two base angles are congruent, and charge forward until you're the proper distance from the vision tetra. Use the same theory with the yellow triangle to the goal. It's very doable, and I'd love to pull it off. I can't think of a more incredible nerd feat attainable at this age than to meet Dave Lavery's personal challenge.
Actually, conceptually it is not that simple. Remember, the challenge is to come up with a real stereo correlation solution, not a simple geometric one. The biggest problem is that there are multiple vision tetras out on the field. You have to compute the true correlation between the camera images to determine if both cameras are looking at the same target. Only then can you back-solve the geometry.

If I am going to give away six dozens tasty treats without allowing any for myself, I have to make sure that the challenge is really worth it! C'mon, are you all going to leave Kevin as the only contender?
