The objective of this project is to utilize the camera and OpenCV to instruct the robocar to identify a tennis ball, collect the ball, and return it to home.




Code Implementation: The process described above can be pretty easily implemented using a while loop and divvying up code into different function. But, this kind of implementation puts restrictions on the code in that it is difficult to modify/build on without significant understanding and restructuring of the code. A better way is to modularize the code by using the DonkeyCar Framework that is already used when running the car with manage.py.

To learn how to modify the DonkeyCar framework, start with the following tutorial videos done by the creator of DonkeyCar. Understanding of these two is all you need to know, and the following discussion should be used as a complement to the tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZ4ESrtfShs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1JjAw_NdnE
