TrackerBox: Object Tracking and Autonomous Robot Steering using a Raspberry Pi and a webcam
by: Mike Ounsworth
Want to track and follow an object but don’t have strong programmers? We provide a Raspberry Pi image that lets you train a target,and then it sends steering commands to the cRIO telling you where in the image the target is.
Our goal is to provide easy access to visual object tracking to teams who do not have sufficient programming knowledge to implement computer vision. We created a software and hardware system that allows teams to train a vision target, say an orange basketball on the ground or a green square on the wall, and have the robot autonomously steer to keep the target in the centre of the image. The system we
built should be simple enough that even teams with little programming knowledge can assemble, download, and use it, and cheap and light enough that any team can use one or multiple of them on their robot.
