Getting the Most from Your Color Camera in a Color-Coded World
In this paper we present a proposal for setting camera parameters which we claim to give results better matched to applications in color-coded environments then the camera internal algorithms. Moreover it does not require online human intervention, i.e. is automated, and is faster than a human operator. This work applies to situations where the camera is used to extract information from a color-coded world. The experimental activity presented has been performed in the framework of Robocup mid-size rules, with the hypothesis of temporal constancy of light conditions; this work is the necessary first step toward dealing with slow changes, in the time domain, of light conditions.
