Limelight Installation


Limelight imaging is a very similar process to Gloworm, but with extra steps.

Base Install Steps

Due to the similarities in hardware, follow the Gloworm install instructions.

Hardware-Specific Steps

Download the hardwareConfig.json file for the version of your Limelight:


No hardware config is provided for the Limelight 3 as AprilTags do not require the LEDs (meaning nobody has reverse-engineered what I/O pins drive the LEDs) and the camera FOV is determined as part of calibration.

Import the hardwareConfig.json file. Again, this is REQUIRED or target measurements will be incorrect, and LEDs will not work.

After installation you should be able to locate the camera at: http://photonvision.local:5800/ (not gloworm.local, as previously)
