As seen by our computersIn this brief video, Patrick and I lead two unpowered blimps around the CSE atrium by means of fishing line. This is one of the test sequences used to test our from-scratch object tracking system. The markings that you can see on each blimp are placed completely automatically in realtime. The computers also know how large the object appears relative to several trained examples, and use this to formulate a 3D estimate for each blimp's position.

Love to .. this particular video shows our tracking software automatically locating the blimpbots. Most of the source code for the tracking software is now open source on our Google code site. The blimpbots are PIC-based and that will be made available as well. Let us know what you're interested in.
