Dear Michael, in my experience, if you try to detect the back led of a robot with the camera of another one, you can expect a perception range of 20cm max, and that depends on the algorithm you use, and the light conditions of your experiments. We had best results with RGB to HSV conversion + segmentation, in low light environments.
IRs are a bit more tricky, if you don't modify the e-puck body and stay with the transparent one, you may detect robots at 2cm, but if you put some reflective tape around the e-puck body, you can reach ~15cm. hope this helps, cheers, alexandre campo.
