Coding Complications

Since the last post, most of my time has been spent attempting to solve various coding problems such as creating a user interface and its related challenges, as well as processing anaglyph videos. The videos have taken a back seat to the interface, now, as it is being more challenging than originally thought. Yijung has been a big help with the coding as has Kevin Kha, who is working on networking the two Raspi’s together. Kevin struck success just yesterday when he was able to successfully send signals and information between the two Raspberry Pi’s directly hooked into one another through an ethernet crossover cable.

As I type this post, however, one of the Raspberry Pi’s seems to have have generated its own problems regarding connecting to the Raspberry Pi network. Kevin and Matt are working on it while I attempt to do what I can, when I can, but… Anyway, expect another update soon. I need to get back to work.


I’m back!

Welcome back, true believers! I’m back at RIT as Joe Pow has hired Maddie, Rachel, and I for the summer. We are working with two new interns, Kevin and Yijung, and an incoming freshman who will be with us in Imaging Science , also named Kevin. Our task this summer is to build on our camera system from last year (pictures will be posted of that, I promise) and allow it to take anaglyph (3D) pictures and, hopefully, video.

This blog is beginning a little late, as we are currently on the intern’s second week and we already have some electronics soldered together, thanks to intern Kevin, and Yijung and I have created the basic code to take two pictures and merge the required color bands into an anaglyph picture. However, we DO have a lot of work ahead of us and plan to keep this blog updated as we go along.


This is our image processing code, written in Python using the Python Imaging Library, alongside an image that was processed using our code.
