Week 6 – March 23rd to March 30th

In this week, the following topics were worked on:

  • Completed the design of the camera support mentioned on the last blog post.
  • Started exploring ViSP, an open source visual servoing platform library, which might help with estimating verticality through the camera image.
  • Worked out which of the Arduino code blocks left by the other students is responsible for getting the inertial readings.

Week 4 – March 9th to 16th

In this week, the following topics were worked on:

  • Last ROS session by teacher Miguel Oliveira.
  • Finished the development of a ROS node which analyses images coming from the camera and prints out the centroid coordinates of a blue ball.
  • Installed all dependencies of the ROS package developed by previous students in which the inertial data is obtained and processed.
