Hi folks -
Last year and at a week zero competition our USB camera image freezes at the beginning of the match and never recovers.
At practice we are fine.
I am concerned this will happen again at our regional.
To set up the USB camera you have to do little code. We had already turned the quality setting to 0.1 I think (sorry I don’t have the code in front of me).
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks so much for your help in advance.::rtm::
Size is the knob you want to turn.
You can check on the amount of data being sent by the camera to verify that it’s below 7mbps.
- Close other things running on the driver station
- Open Resource Monitor and verify that you’re not using much network bandwidth (Network tab)
- Start the robot and the driver station
- Look at network activity in Resource Monitor. Is it above 7mbps? If so, tweak settings to lower resolution or frame rate.
Personally, I wouldn’t let my team run at more than about 6.5 mbps.
Thanks for the tip.
When we ran the camera feed on the java dashboard - we were at close to 7 mb
When we use the default dashboard - we were less than 1 mb
I guess we will have to see what it does on the practice field when we get to our regional.
