CSL exhibit wins second prize in EOH competition
Congratulations to CSL researcher Minh Do (ECE) and students Matt Maitre, Quang Nguyen and Spencer Brady, who won the second prize of Engineering Open House’s “Sparking Curiosity-Technical” competition.
The group’s exhibit, “3D Remote Reality,” allows users to control their viewing experience by combining images from multiple cameras. Three cameras capture a scene – perhaps a video conference – from different angles and send the data to a computer, which processes the information. The computer transmits the data across the Internet to the user, who can change the 3D viewing angles with the click of a mouse.
