Title: Development of an Embedded 3D Robot Visual System
Subject: Robotics / Electronics
Grade level: Middle School - Grades 7-9
Academic Level: Advanced
Project Type: Building Type
Awards: 1st place, Canada Wide Virtual Science Fair (2004)
Affiliation: Canada Wide Virtual Science Fair (VSF)
Description: The methods employed in this project were able to generate vectors of the left and right camera images to represent the 2D projection, and then attempt to reconstruct the 3D object by matching together the vectors. This may allow the object to be shown in 3D space by a series of vector lines and interpreted by a higher-level system to recognize the object, determine orientation and position of the object in 3D space, and make sense of simple scenes.
