To validate my technical degree in Informatics-Embedded Systems I have done from march to june 2007 a placement in the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland. The subject was to develop a control system for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) using image processing.
Thus, the main part of my work was to write algorithms to process images captured by the webcam.
- Lines and rectangles detection (using Hough space instead of Cartesian space).
- Circle detection with its center.
- Edge detection.
- Color detection (using HSV color space instead of RGB).
- Luminosity detection.
Once, environment is know, the AUV must move by activating its 3 motors. To control the motors from the a PC, the board K8055 is used.
