CMUcam2 Documentation
Filename Description Size
CMUcam2_workbook.pdf
CMUcam2_workbook.zip

Everything you need to know about the care and feeding of your nifty CMUcam2 camera is in this document.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

(1) The optimum mounting position for the camera is with the tilt axis extending through the camera lens (i.e., upside-down relative to the illustrations in the workbook). This is the orientation my software expects.

(2) The manual walks you through the process of calibrating the camera. You shouldn't need to perform this step because my camera software already contains calibration parameters for the FRC green target light.
