I completely agree. We got a prototype of a Vision program to identify cubes on the JeVois working this year, but we never used it at competition because we found that using splines to get to the two fence cubes was very accurate.
One thing to keep in mind is how you're going to use Vision information to perform a task on the robot. Integrating this data is often considered the hardest part when talking about Vision. We are considering trying out some experiments over the next few months to somehow integrate Vision data to correct error while path following, so we'll see how that goes.
