3 Image unwrapping
4.1 Blob tracking
A simple demo was developed to track an orange blob. It is thought to be run with the omnivision extension. The robot rotate in place towards the target when it finds one.
The code can be downloaded from the following repo:
git clone https://github.com/e-puck2/e-puck2_pi_blob-tracking.git
Refer to the github page for information about building and running this demo.
This example is available in the system in the directory
This directory includes a simple launch script for the demo that can be run with the command
./omni_detect_blob.sh; the color parameters given are supposed to follow a pink object.
Beware that this directory isn't garanted to be synced with the last repository version, thus to get the last version use
git pull and then rebuild.
