New Camera Calibration Method

New Camera Calibration Method

A new method for calibrating FarmBot’s camera via a printed calibration card with a dot grid is now available in the photos panel. This method greatly simplifies and automates the calibration procedure by removing the need to precisely place calibration objects in the soil, measure their distance, ensure the color range is set to provide accurate results, and figure out where the origin is in the image.

Because all Genesis v1.5+ and Express v1.0+ kits include the new calibration card, the new method is presented as the default procedure. The old method is still available via the USE ALTERNATIVE METHOD checkbox.

You can find updated documentation here.
