Abstract:

Mezzanine is an overhead 2D visual tracking package intended primarily for use as a mobile robot metrology system. It uses a camera to track objects marked with color-coded ducials, and infers the pose position and orientation of these objects in world coordinates. Mezzanine will work with most color cameras even the really cheap ones, and can correct for the barrel distortion produced by wide-angle-lenses. Mezzanine is language and architecture neutral object poses are written into a shared memory- mapped le which other programs can read and make use of as they see t. Mezzanine itself is written in pure C and was developed under Linux on x86 hardware.
