Cameras?

I was thinking about putting a remote camera on our robot.

It would have several advantages, such as aiding in the positionment of our stacking robot and being able to see if the stacks of boxes haven’t been knocked down.

My team likes this idea, but they said that I need permission or something.

What are the rulings on external objects to the robot?

a quick search on ‘mount camera on robot’ got me this thread.

i’m sure others exist. the search page is your friend.

You cannot have a camera on your robot that acts as an aid to the driver.

You can have a camera, with permission from FIRST at the regional or at nationals, to put a camera on it for recording.

Heh. I think my camcorder would break the weight limit on it’s own :smiley: pets his Elmo
