Determining Robot Position Relative to Vision Target by Analyzing Camera Image
This paper explains how to use the ellipse detection software with the camera to determine the robot’s position relative to the target.
Using the FRC Camera in conjunction with the NI Vision software, the robot’s position relative to a vision target can be determined. The Vision software can detect ellipses in the camera image and measure their major and minor diameters. The ellipse detection software can thus measure the apparent deformation of the target by the camera’s changing angle relative to the target, which can be used to determine the robot’s position.
