Presenting Our Analysis Tool

Today I performed my final presentation for my senior project. My project, A Tool to Analyze Spoken Dialogue and Pupil Diameter on a Multi-Touch Surface, was the development of a piece of software to help researchers analyze post-experimentation data. This data came from a past experiment,¬†described here. The tool loads this data into a single, …

Transcription and Some Cross Correlation

In one of my previous posts I demonstrated some software I have been working on at Project54. In the past weeks I have added a few features to this project. Originally, the project could import the associated dialogue and display it in the correct time location. This was cool but the user could not edit …

Visualizing Sound Files on A Multitouch Surface

For most of the summer now I have been developing software to allow for the visualization of sound files.¬† Other products such as Wavesurfer and Audacity already accomplish this task along with other capabilities. What differs between those programs and the one I have been working on is its use is for the Microsoft Surface. …

Optimizing Graphs on The Microsoft Surface

Recently, while working on a project to visualize .wav files on the Microsoft Surface, I ran into an issue regarding the canvas controls size. While developing this software I am testing with a .wav file about 4 minutes long. Visualizing this file creates a canvas with a width of about 20,000 pixels . . . …

AR Drone In-Flight Mapping

Now that some basic autonomous flight capabilities are implemented with my quadrotor software, I am now working on implementing photo mapping functionality so that the user can see pictures from the entire flight in a simple, attractive, and easy-to-use manner. This is one of the first renditions of my software’s In-Flight Mapping system where it …

Accelerometer plotting in MATLAB

The current project I am working on concerns reading data from an accelerometer in order to move a player in an air hockey game being played on the Microsoft Surface. There is a delay in tracking fast movements on the surface which can be an issue when playing a game. The idea is to cut …

Mapping Data On The Microsoft Surface Within InfoStrat.VE

Over the Winter Break here at Project54 I have had the chance to work on developing an application for the Microsoft Surface. This project uses the InfoStrat Virtual Earth software, which provides an excellent template of an interactive 3D world using Bing Maps. My application uses environmental data (in this demo sediment levels in water). …

Back in Flight!

After updating my software to use a more efficient method of video stream communication between the drone and the surface, I had a vast number of complications which wound up with a non-responsive drone and software that could do nothing more than lift off and land the drone. After extensive testing, debugging, and reverting some …

Micro Aerial Vehicles – The Future of UAVs

After spending the majority of my summer working on the Parrot AR.Drone Quadrotor, I spent some time researching other forms of micro aerial vehicles or “MAV”s and it turns out there is a lot of interest in MAV development. Consequently, the Microsoft Surface project myself and other students from WPI and UNH are working on, …
