Quick Cone Detector

Here is a quick demo of a cone detector. It returns the x,y coordinates of the center of the cone and the vector from the center of the frame (presumably where the robot is pointing) to the cone.

I will post a python snippet when we get to it, but this should give you guys an idea of the range of the cone detection (10 feet or so)

This reminds me that we need to get some cones. Please contact maintenance and public safety to see if we can borrow a couple of standard road cones. If not, I will buy some, but they are not cheap.


Computer vision requires massive CPU utilization so the cone detector will only run at 10 Hz or so.
