Executive Summary

Most people do not realize how difficult it can be to process a digital image and extract meaningful data, such as information required to drive a robot or operate an embedded platform. Humans see the world as a series of concrete images, but robots using a web cam see it as an array of red, green, and blue pixel values. To extract meaningful visual data out of this array of pixel values, one needs special software. That's what the robot example in this paper does. To better understand how a robot can process digital images, this paper describes how to use Microsoft Robotics Development Studio (MRDS), version 2.0 to create a simulation in which a LEGO NXT Tribot follows a black line.
