INCAPS An Intelligent Camera-Projection System Framework Roberto Valenti Jurjen Pieters Overview • The State of The Art • What are we going to do • The Framework • First Year(s) Project Plan • Examples • References • Equipment Costs Estimation State of The Art State of The Art State of The Art State of The Art The Situation Hardware Hardware Hardware Company Hardware Company Company Algorithms Company Algorithms Algorithms Algorithms Databases Databases Databases Software Databases Software Software Software What are we going to do? • The scene needs a framework – Easier way to implement application – Interoperability – New possibilities (more on this later) The framework will extract information from “the world”, and will give the opportunity to select what is relevant The Framework Users or Companies Input Devices (Camera) Input Analysis DB Internal world INCAPS representation Picture Processing Modules Output Devices (Projector) The world as a source.. • We have to represent the world internally to understand it better • Single components are not enough • All the input devices are used to sample the world on different aspects (a lot of information out there!) • REALTIME! The Project Planning • First year: Research and tests of algorithms on multiple input devices, setup and tuning. • Second year: Have an efficient internal world representation. • Third year: Addition of multiple input/output devices, creation of API’s Reality 2 Digital Reality 2 Digital 3D Information Extraction • We have an internal world-map, we can specify rules (I.e. pedestrians) • Companies/Users can decide what is important (tumors, broken bones, road, traffic signs,components) • Possibility to apply further algorithms to subsets of world-data • Depending on the application, we can recognize and label objects, matching them with databases and ad-hoc algorithms Digital 2 Reality • The extracted information is displayed to the user in the most useful way, depending on the application. Digital 2 Reality: Examples Night Vision Pedestrian detection Equipment Costs Estimation A very powerful computer, a car and .. • Input Devices: • Output Devices : – Stereo Camera – One or two out of: – Radars • Projector • VR glasses – IR Night-viewer • Translucent screen – Database System • HUD – Wireless Communication – GPS Total: ~30.000 € References  Y.
