Using AprilTags for Pose Estimation
The following example is from the PhotonLib example repository (Java).
Knowledge and Equipment Needed
Everything required in Aiming at a Target.
Large space where your robot can move around freely
An open space with properly mounted 16h5 AprilTags
PhotonVision running on your laptop or a coprocessor
This example will show you how to use AprilTags for full field robot localization using
AprilTagFieldLayout, and the WPILib Pose Estimation Classes.
All PhotonVision specific code is in
PhotonCameraWrapper.java and the relevant pose estimation parts are in
Please note that this code does not support simulation in the traditional sense (properly simulating each target that can be detected within sim), but you can still see the pose the camera is returning from the tags using Glass / Field2d when you are running PhotonVision on a robot. Make sure you properly set your ip/hostname in
Robot.java when doing this.
