The robot identifies a point P at the back of the arrow and a point P at the front of the arrow, both at height Y. Their coordinates as projected onto the robots image plane are ( x, y ) and ( x , y ), respectively. The robot is facing due east with the Z-axis of its camera perfectly horizontal and at height 0. The X-axis is pointing due north. The focal length of the camera is known to be f . The length of the vane is unknown. In what direction is the wind blowing? (Assume that the wind is blowing in the direction from P to P .) Report your answer as an expression for the angle between due east and the wind. I.e., report the angle t as pictured in the diagram below, as a function of x, y, x , y , Y and f . ( Hint: Because the height Y of the vane is known, you should be able to find the 3-D coordinates of points P and P .)
