The Adsys SCOPE team designed a ping pong playing robot. The goal of the demonstrator is to showcase the capabilities of Adsys Controls in vision systems, dynamics, and robotics control systems. The demonstrator utilizes Adsys Controls’ ProLight-based high speed vision system as well as their commercial FPGA Image Processing Toolkit libraries. The team tackled the technically challenging problem of detecting, tracking, and manipulating a ping pong ball in real time.
