With computer vision playing more and more important role in robotics, it became clear that a new approach, standardizing the method of vision subsystems development and testing, is required. This paper presents FraDIA, a vision framework, that can work as a stand–alone application, as well as a vision subsystem of the MRROC++ based robotic controllers. The framework description emphasizes its architecture and methods of vision tasks implementation. The diversity of presented robotic tasks utilizing the framework prove its usability.
