Game Field Camera Calibration

While working on calibrating the new CMU Camera the question was asked by our students. How will we calibrate the camera at the regional competition? I was not sure how to answer the question. We will need to calibrate the camera under the lights of the competition field. Since the calibration has to be done with a computer attached will we have a separate time for camera calibration or will we have to squeeze this in to our practice matches while other robots are on the field? Give me your comments and ideas. I am assuming that more teams will be using the camera in this years kit so it might be a scheduling problem.

Q: Will there be an official area at the competitions to calibrate the camera with the correct lighting and field elements?
