Technical Difficulties

August 17th, 2007 by Hannah

From what I can tell (and what we’ve discussed), one of the bigger technical challenges that I think we will face will keeping track of where each user is within the space. Assigning emotions to an id in a database is fairly straight-forward, as is projecting emotion rings around a person from above.  But I think knowing which person belongs to that id (so as to project the correct emotions around the correct person) might be tricky.

Some ideas for possible solutions: Colour tracking or some other video-based tracking (probably our best bet, would likely require more cameras to view from the side, and might affect how we choose to handle lighting within the installation), Give users something to help us track them (something with a specific colour, rfid, sound..).

That’s pretty much all I’ve got, but hopefully one of you will have a better idea. Please post anything you think of.

PS. My arduino board arrived and I made an LED blink.
