Progress with SRV-1 Blackfin Stereo Vision System

Sentience stereo vision software developer Bob Motram has been working for a few weeks with one of the prototype SRV-1 Blackfin stereo vision systems, and he has already developed a slick calibration procedure to correct for wide-angle lens distortion, as described here -

Initial tests of stereo correspondence procedures have started, as discussed here -

You can track Bob's progress via his blog or via his source code.

Live Internet control of SRV-1 Blackfin Robots - BP Explorer

This is a fantastic demo of SRV-1 robot remote control through the Internet - www.bpexplorer.com.au









The images above show some fixed camera views of the "set" as well as snapshots captured by one of the robots. Five robots are available for control at any time, though sometimes the queue to access the site is quite long. The BP Explorer demo is intended to highlight some of BP's green technologies, including the solar panels that are used to recharge the robots. Kudos to the amazing job Ogilvy New Zealand did in putting this together for BP Australia.
