Colloquium - Griswold


RealityFlythrough - A System for Ubiquitous Video
University of California, San Diego

There are many situations in which one would like to explore a remote place without the inconvenience or danger of doing so in person. RealityFlythrough is a video telepresence system that works in dynamic, uncalibrated environments. Using commodity networked mobile video cameras and a variety of positioning technologies, it allows a person to immersively explore a remote physical space. The live 2d video feeds are situated in a 3d model of the world. When a person using RealityFlythrough switches from viewing one camera stream to another, cues in the form of a dynamic transition provide a sense of how the camera streams relate to each other in 3d. Attention is paid to the realities of networked first-person video in order to produce a sensible and calm experience. In this talk I introduce the concepts, abstractions, and systems support behind RealityFlythrough, with supporting video clips from field deployments in disaster response training exercises.

Hosted by Kenneth Anderson.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well.
