Abstract

This project explores various vision methodologies to locate and return a user-specified object. The project involves building an automatic robotic unit with an all-terrain chassis vehicle and integrated camera. The high level vision control system uses serial communication to direct the low level mechanical parts. The chosen approach for vision analysis is comparison of color thresholds. This solution provides generally accurate detection even in an environment which is noisy but has good color contrast.
