Smart Parking Solutions for Big Cities

25. April 2012 - 17:29 Uhr

Find parking faster. Pay more easily. Avoid tickets. SFMTA’s SFpark project is a two-year federally funded pilot of new parking management technologies and approaches. Less circling and fewer double-parked cars give us cleaner air and safer streets for bicyclists and pedestrians. With less traffic, public transit and emergency vehicles move more easily.

Descriptive Camera

25. April 2012 - 16:36 Uhr

Descriptive Camera in development

Really nice concept to utilize Amazons MechTurk and a glimpse of light at the tunnel of the private picture chaos.

The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, this prototype outputs a text description of the scene.

Prints from the Descriptive Camera

The technology at the core of the Descriptive Camera is Amazon’s Mechanical Turk API. It allows a developer to submit Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs) for workers on the internet to complete. The developer sets the guidelines for each task and designs the interface for the worker to submit their results. The developer also sets the price they’re willing to pay for the successful completion of each task. An approval and reputation system ensures that workers are incented to deliver acceptable results. For faster and cheaper results, the camera can also be put into „accomplice mode,“ where it will send an instant message to any other person. That IM will contain a link to the picture and a form where they can input the description of the image.

20. April 2012 - 09:08 Uhr

3D Projection Mapping is an interesting technology with many areas of application. In this video a Russian visualization company has made an impressive presentation for Marlboro and Audi.

The complex process of aligning the projection and animation onto the car’s body is demonstrated in the beginning. The holographic illusion created by this technology is suited for 3D animation and even photo-realistic projection on every three-dimensional object.
