#### Vision on the Machine
To get after this, next step here is to integrate a camera onto the DEX mechanically. The previous work taught me that (1) strong lighting is important, as is clarity of target-against-background. Some prep will be worth it. This is a fitting (haha) time to re-design the fixturing for the DEX, as the targets / camera / fixturing system will all need to agree with one another.
