The Heart of the Vision System

colour segmentation

Our vision system relies on a custom service we wrote in Microsoft Robotics Studio. It uses a slightly altered color-segmentation algorithm to locate tennis-ball-like objects within the view of the WebCam. Once the x,y coordinates of the largest, visible ball have been determined, the service relays the data back to the driving algorithm and the robot heads towards the ball.
