Zebravision 3.5 is Team 900's work done in the postseason of 2015 and preseason of 2016. Our focus has been finding new ways to gather information about our robot's surroundings. We have been working to integrate the StereoLabs ZED, a stereoscopic camera, into the 2015 vision system with the Jetson TK1 using OpenCV. Special thanks to Stereolabs for providing support and assistance as we tested and integrated the ZED into our own work. We could not do this without their support!
Webinar for new teams about the virtual Kit Of Parts (KOP) and FIRST Choice. Covers TIMS, redeeming voucher codes, and how the FIRST Choice process works. Details provided by FIRST and AndyMark as well as from what we've done in the past.

Zebravision 3.0 represents the culmination of many hours of work and research by the programming students for FRC Team 900, also known as the Zebracorns. It encompasses a library and several applications that are designed to use a Logitech C920 camera mounted to a robot to detect recycling bins in the 2015 FRC game: Recycle Rush. It is designed to run in real time using the OpenCV library onboard a NVIDIA Jetson TK1 DevKit mounted to the robot. The detection is done using the Cascade Classification method and Local Binary Patterns.
This is a library written for the NavX which allows it to be communicated with in LabVIEW."
Our design process began with the identification of desirable features not currently offered by other boards. Namely, we wanted a board that mounts directly to the Talon...
This is the presentation given by Patricia Beekman on using strategy effectively in the design process. While partly an outline of the Zebracorns' own strategizing timeline, this presentation also covers the importance of strategy and different factors to consider while analyzing strategies.
