Conversely, the memory space used by the RTDB is freed using the function call DB_free() that decreases the process count and, when zero, releases the shared memory block. The RTDB is accessed concurrently from Linux processes that capture and process images and implement complex behaviors, and from tasks that manage the communication both with the lower-level control layer (through the CAN gateway) and with the other agents (through the wireless interface). The Linux processes access the RTDB with local non-blocking function calls, DB_put() and DB_get() that allow writing and reading records, respectively.

The Kalman filter allows to filter the noise on the ball position and provides an important prediction feature which allows fast detection of deviations of the ball path. The linear regression used to estimate the velocity is also effective, and combined with the deviation detection based on the Kalman filter prediction error, provides a faster way to recalculate the velocity in the new trajectory. The increasing reliability of the ball position and velocity lead to a better ball trajectory evaluation.
