This is the CAD from our 2015 robot for Recycle Rush
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.

We got tired of trying to keep track of student hours on paper so we built a program to do so. Students sign in at the beginning of meetings with a barcode scanner and out at the end of the meeting.
It has adjustable variables for requirements (# hours/#meetings attended) as well as many others (see the documentation for more). We've also set it up to provide graphs and statistics for when schools or sponsors ask.
There is an example website set up. The credentials are:
Admin account - email@example.com / zebracorns
Student account - firstname.lastname@example.org / zebra
Feel free to play around and create items, please just don't delete or edit these two users. Our current setup is a Raspberry Pi hooked up to a monitor and a barcode scanner. It's been working great for us.
Check out our battery cart. It's been great for storing the batteries and at competitions.
