[Explorer] Image Processing

Post by karimkorish » Sat Jun 08, 2019 11:03 am

Regarding the Line Following task, can we measure the length of crack directly without following the line manually or autonomously?
Also in the Species Recognition task, can the co-pilot alter some threshold values manually during the species recognition underwater using GUI for better species recognition?

1) Yes, you may measure the length of the crack without following the line. That would constitute determining the length of the crack with manual control (you are not autonomously following the line).

2) No. Once you uncover the rock, you can pilot your vehicle to get the best view of the benthic species, you can transfer an image to another device at the mission station, but at that point you should not alter your program.

Good luck.
