Locating the Flippers

The system takes two snapshots to locate the three flippers, one on the left and two on the right. The FG-100-V has three data acquisition modes: ``Clear'', ``Snap'', and ``Grab''. Snap acquires a single frame only. First of all, the system takes one snapshot, activates the flippers, and takes a second snapshot. Then it reads all the pixels from the result of image subtraction of those two snapshots, and locates the flippers by finding the white pixels.
