Digital Research Week: Hands-on Demonstrations Wednesday 25 April
On Wednesday 25 April, the atrium in the Engineering and Sciences Learning Centre on University Park will host the Digital Research Week’s Demo Day. We have invited researchers from all faculties to showcase innovative technology that they have been working on, and are proud to introduce the following demonstrations:
Will Bowden from the Department of Archaeology will be presenting an augmented reality reconstruction of a Roman town in Norfolk.
Jasmeet Kaler’s work uses an accelerometer and bespoke algorithms to detect sheep lameness, a health issue costing the agricultural sector £80m per year.
The Mixed Reality Lab in the School of Computer Science will be well represented with 5 different demos:
Holger Schnädelbach will present Breathing Space, an “adaptive architecture” tent that creates a soothing feedback loop between individuals’ breathing and their environment.
Yitong Huang will introduce WorkMyWay, an Internet of Things (IoT) based intervention to foster health in the workplace
Tony Pridmore from the Computer Vision Lab will present a robotic arm used to take photos of and create 3D models of plants with the aim of phenotyping (i.e. measuring functional and structural properties of) these plants.
Finally, the Digital Research Team will showcase a range of technologies (digital pens, tablets, handheld scanners) used to digitise text and handwriting.
