Visual Servoing Platform  version 3.3.1 under development (2020-10-25)
tutorial-flir-ptu-ibvs.cpp

Example of eye-in-hand image-based control law. We control here a real robot, the FLIR PTU that has 2 degrees of freedom. The velocity is computed in the joint space. Visual features are the image coordinates of the center of gravity of an AprilTag. The goal is here to center the tag in the image acquired from a FLIR camera mounted on the PTU.

Camera extrinsic (eMc) parameters are set by default to a value that will not match Your configuration. Use –eMc command line option to read the values from a file. This file could be obtained following extrinsic camera calibration tutorial: https://visp-doc.inria.fr/doxygen/visp-daily/tutorial-calibration-extrinsic.html

Camera intrinsic parameters are retrieved from the Realsense SDK.

The target is an AprilTag. It's size doesn't matter since we are using the center of gravity position.
