Presentation for feedback of project

  1. 1. DEVELOPMENT OF ECONOMICAL SURFACES: AN ACADEMIA’S PERSPECTIVE• NAFEES AHMED(GL) (08CS96)• ADEEL AHMED (08CS98)• ASADULLAH NIZAMANI (08CS94)• HUMAIR BALOCH (08CS16) Unified Crest Research and Development Platform DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SYSTEM ENGINEERING MEHRAN UNIVERSITY OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY JAMSHORO
  2. 2. Presentation Outline • Introduction to economical surfaces • Traditional versus economical computing surfaces • Design and Development of surface computing (DeskTAP) • Working of DeskTAP • Cost and Scope Analysis • Feedback • Conclusion
  3. 3. Economical Surfaces
  4. 4. Traditional Computing Vs. Surface Computing Surface Computing  You can use your fingers for input.  It provides direct interaction to user.  It provides Multi-touch & Multi-user environment.  It also support object recognition .
  5. 5. Surface Computing in AcademiaMulti User Interaction• In Academia’s Perspective these economical surface may be very effective: provides Multi-touch / Multi-user environment, i.e., many students can perform different activities simultaneously.Interactive and Easy-to-Use• These surfaces are very Interactive and easy-to-use such that a kindergarten to a qualified one can operate with it conveniently.
  6. 6. Design & Development of DeskTAPBuilding blocks of DeskTAP• Hardware• Software Hardware Hardware consists of  Wooden Table  Webcam  IR LEDS with 850 nm wave length  Projector  12v power supply
  7. 7. Continued… Computer Tracing paper Acrylic Sheet MirrorSOFTWAREThe software that we used for hardware interfacing is an open sourcesoftware that is Community core Vision version 1.4.For the hardware to work properly in windows 7 we had to installmulti touch drivers for windows 7For running flash applications on our hardware we used AdobeShockwave and Flash player.
  8. 8. Cost and Scope AnalysisItem name Quantity Price (in PKR)WebCam 01 2500Acrylic sheet 01 2500Infrared LEDS 170 3500Table 01 3000Camera Roll 01 120Tracing paper 01 230Buffer 01 120Wire connector 01 150Mirror 01 200Soldering Iron 01 200Soldering wire 01 60Total 12580
  9. 9. Scope Analysis• The Scope analysis encompasses the different application areas of our project.• Some of them are stated below Restaurants Academic institutions Shopping malls Hotels Banks , Hospitals and Franchises Offices, Meetings ETC…..
  10. 10. Conclusion• Surface computing in academia provides more advantages over traditional computing• It provides multiuser and multi touch environment for all the users, which are its key features and provides it the wow effect• The economical model that we have proposed and developed if implemented it could be very much useful in different application areas pertaining to academia
