3D tracking with Arduino Nano and IMU

What This project is a wireless “heading reference system” that tracks alignment, and a Processing sketch that visualizes it.  My particular version of this gets the volume too and changes the visualization based on that.   It’s based on an Arduino Nano, a Pololu IMU…

Experimenting with LED lighting for 3D reconstruction

  Lighting outside of studio conditions can be tricky, especially when shooting something in motion or without a tripod where you don’t have exposure time as an option for getting more light into the camera.  The sort of 3D-reconstruction-from-images I work with needs hundreds of source photos, and this…

DC Servo Motor controller

DC Servo Motor controller

We’ve been working on a linear actuator motion system and have been experimenting with the RMCS-2207 DC Servo Motor from RoboKitsWorld.com.  It’s a really neat package, coupling together a high-torque DC motor, a gear train, an optical encoder, and a 5v serial-controllable motor controller all…

results from path compositing software

results from path compositing software

I’ve been working on a bespoke image-matching and compositing application to go along with the robot-driven work “Making Sense”.  I’m very happy to say that it works better for my use than Microsoft’s Image Composite Editor that I’ve been using up ’till now.  I’ve been wanting to do a video…

Full-length graffiti tunnel scan

Full-length graffiti tunnel scan

Edit: I’ve added an update with images of the newly whitewashed tunnel walls.  I feel lucky to have completed the shoot before everything was erased!   The shoot Last weekend I completed photo image-capture of the full-length of the Enmore graffiti tunnel: 1207 photos in total down…

3D Digital conservation tool: “Share View” feature added

3D Digital conservation tool: “Share View” feature added

The 3D ‘digital conservation’ tool I’m working on has just got a new feature: you can share your view with others.  This means you can send a friend or colleague a URL to a particular reconstructed location, and the view will start looking at what…

Field notes: Gone Home

Field notes: Gone Home

  Today I started playing the fantastic game gone home, and had to laugh: the game is filled with the sort of interactive 3D models of everyday objects that I’ve been making as part of my own Consumables project.  Only many many more. Gone home puts the player in…

Achieving good results with low-poly models

Achieving good results with low-poly models

My current project is a fairly large 3D reconstruction of a graffiti site.  I’m aiming to faithfully reproduce the surface image and texture for the entire site, and allow online and tablet users to navigate interactively through it.  Two concerns are the overall size of…

Guided Tours in Virtual Environments

Guided Tours in Virtual Environments

My recent research is looking to extend image-based 3D reconstructions through an interactive online virtual environments featuring very high resolution images, and a guided tour system.  I’m currently working on modelling a densely graffitied tunnel in Sydney, but am interested in more vulnerable, remote, and…
