Towards a self-motivated camera

Posted: January 30, 2009 at 1:24 am

Before starting to impliment the ideas of having the camera control its own path I need to be able to verify what the camera is looking at. To that end I’ have determined a mapping between unit ID and pan/tilt location, in order to vizualize the field of the camera. Following is a montage of 56×11 640×480 images arranges by thier position in pan/tilt space. Future plots of camera paths will be superimposed on this feild.

The images on the far left edge are blurry because the camera was not given sufficient time, between captures, to move from the far right to the left right.
