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, …

3×3 LED Array Prototype

Here we have our first prototype for of a 3×3 LED Array that will be used for investigation purposes of the arduino microcontroller and the possiblities of implemetation within the project 54 simulator. This device is the first generation of a new directional navigation device. Expanding on this idea my senior project team and I will create larger LED arrarys able to understand …

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 …

Analyzing Time Series Data on the Microsoft Surface

In our last demo we showed the simplicity of scrolling through pre-generated time series data on the Microsoft Surface. We have now implemented real data with the same functionality. The new software, seen below, demonstrates basic data visualization and manipulation of Buoy data collected throughout the Great Bay area. The graphing is created using Microsoft …

Data Over Time

To demonstrate the potential for displaying data over time, I created a sample application on top of the InfoStrat.VE(virtual Earth). This sample program allows the user to scroll through MatLab generated data over a time frame of nine years. This type of visual data display could make analyzing time series information more interesting and fun. …

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). …
