An image-processing robot for RoboCup Junior

Helen: Today we’re delighted to have a guest post from 17-year-old student Arne Baeyens, aka Robotanicus, who has form in designing prize-winning robots. His latest, designed for the line-following challenge of a local competition, is rather impressive. Over to Arne… Two months ago, the 24th of May, I participated in the RoboCup Junior competition Flanders,... Continue reading

It’s haunted hardware of horripilating hideousness. You’ll also find instructions... Continue reading

OpenCV is an open-source library for real-time image processing, and is... Continue reading

This lovely hack from Pierre Raufast is the sort of OpenCV application that we hope to see much more of when the camera board goes up for sale (and the Pi camera would be a... Continue reading
