The Small Size League of the RoboCup represents a simplified and controllable
domain for computer vision in comparison to the real world. All objects in
this domain can be uniquely coded by coloured markings. Due to the fixed camera
position perpendicularly over the playing field center, usually methods of stereo
vision are not needed.
Existing Computer Vision Systems for this domain are either not freely available
or too inflexible, in order to be applied by laymen without a huge effort in
adapting and re-writing the system.
The development of a purely software-based, freely available image recognition system
in the context of a library will be described in this thesis. The proposed system supplies
sufficient information to agents acting in this domain, and allows them a purposeful action
control. Beyond that, the system could be applied in a broad field of similar domains.
