A lot has changed on the software side since our last update. Using OpenCV libraries and C++, we are now able to identify an object and track it within our field of view.
Using a camera, the AUV captures an image and converts it to a threshold image. We can then instruct the AUV to filter out certain colors and shapes. Once an object is identified, our AUV will find the coordinates of where it is and will move towards it.
This can be used for many aspects of the RoboSub competition, including the first task of the qualifier, which is locating and moving through an inverted U.
