Vision Applications with Quanser Systems

Thursday, September 22nd, 2022
10 AM EDT (UTC/GMT-4)

This webinar will give a brief overview of the importance of vision systems for modern teaching and research using Quanser products. The session will emphasize the capabilities of Quanser’s QUARC libraries for a variety of vision applications using MATLAB/Simulink. We will start with an overview of camera interfacing and the basic QUARC vision blocks using a standalone RGBD camera for blob detection and tracking. From there, we will use the the QBot 3 and the QArm for several more advanced examples including visual servoing to highlight some advanced QUARC functions.
