Team 3157 will be using a new video camera this year. We plan to use one of the ONVIF compatible IP cameras with our software to explore the world of vision code, test autonomous sequences and teleoperated-mode game piece and field element detection systems. We chose our particular camera because its ONVIF compatibility allows use of RTSP streaming that enables the video feed to be fetched using a simple URL with any open source software.
We will also be using the same camera to record the robot build process and competition seasons to share our experiences with future team members. If you’re a teacher or student and are interested in a good list of robotics related websites, give this page a read.
