Virtual RC Racing Nipunn Koorapati Erik Schmidt Jacob Olson Robert Liu Concept Think Mario Kart with real RC cars Virtual race environment projected onto the ground
Speed of car varies with terrain (like Mario Kart) Perhaps interactive items (Thunderbolts?!) Switching race tracks is easy After a few hours of hacking Competitive Analysis Mario Kart RC Race Set $100
Mario Kart Wii $50 Intel Research at CES 2011 Requirements Functional: Projected Racetrack Individually Controlled Cars Terrain Influences Speed o Grass = Slow o Pavement = Fast
o Out of Bounds = Off Non Functional: Low controller latency (< 50 ms) Low terrain detection latency (< 100 ms) Configurable Racetracks Architecture Technical Specifications Hardware: Laptop
PicoProjector Webcam RC Cars RC Controller o Arduino Pro Mini o XBee Wireless Modules o XBee Explorer USB Software: RC Controller Processing o Arduino/Xbee
Car Location System o Using OpenCV Image Processing o Python bindings Game Logic o PyGame Anticipated Risks & Mitigation Risk: High Latency in image processing o Tested out code run on our webcam o 15 FPS Webcam -> 14.9 FPS with image processing
Risk: Image detection too inaccurate/finicky o Consulted someone with OpenCV experience o Contrast colors in projected track with RC car colors o Use Optical Flow for accurate motion tracking o Backup plan: place infared beacons on each car
"[Affect] theorists are gripped by the notion that most philosophers and critics in the past … have overvalued the role of reason and rationality in politics, ethics, and aesthetics, with the result that they have given too flat or "unlayered"...
limited in scope e.g. entertainment services, computer reservation, car rentals are place elsewhere in W/120. Tourism and travel related Vs Recreation, Cultural and Sporting services. Complicates the negotiations and limit measuring trade in tourism services

AES is a symmetric block cipher that is intended to replace DES as the approved standard for a wide range of applications. The AES cipher (& other candidates) form the latest generation of block ciphers, and now we see a...
