Use of Stereo Vision Technology to Determine Position of Soccer Robots
Keywords:Soccer Robots, Computer Vision, Calibration and Triangulation
The propose of this study is to develop hardware and position algorithms completely integrated with the sensorial systems of robots to determine exactly the position of soccer robots in the playing field. These algorithms detail how to configure controllers to determine the movement of robots during the match.
The study initially introduces some concepts of stereo reconstruction and triangulation in Computer Vision approaching, and provides an introduction to the calibration of cameras and types of triangulation. Finally is considers a structure to integrate camera systems with the movements of robots. An Experiment is shown which calculates the distance between robots and yours position in the real world.
