SENSOR/GPS DATA INTERPOLATION

The issue start with the different kinds of data. We got 1903 light data from sensor which was based on time, and got 107 GPS points which was based on distance.

So, the problem need be solved here is interpolate more GPS points for each light data. Here is the JAVA program.

STEP 1, IMPORT DATA

STEP2, INTERPOLATE DATA

STEP 3, EXPORT DATA

With this program we got a new CSV files with 1903 data include light data and gps data. Here is the QGIS visualize the data. (The blue point is the original 107 GPS points we got, the red point between is the new point we interpolate.)

THE LIGHT DATA AND VISULIZATION TEST

We got the light data from the photocell sensor in Arduino, and got the GPS data as well. The files we got is the light data CSV file(3000 data) and the GPS data (gpx file with 63 track-point).

IBM SMARTER CITIES

What is a Smarter City?

Infrastructure. Operations. People.

What makes a city? The answer, of course, is all three. A city is an interconnected system of systems. A dynamic work in progress, with progress as its watchword. A tripod that relies on strong support for and among each of its pillars, to become a smarter city for all.

Smarter cities of the future will drive sustainable economic growth. Their leaders have the tools to analyze data for better decisions, anticipate problems to resolve them proactively and coordinate resources to operate effectively.

As demands grow and budgets tighten, solutions also have to be smarter, and address the city as a whole. By collecting and analyzing the extensive data generated every second of every day, tools such as the IBM Intelligent Operations Center coordinate and share data in a single view creating the big picture for the decision makers and responders who support the smarter city.

ARDUINO, AR, VR Technology for DATA PROTOTYPE OF CONTEXT

Urban-ism determined by technology!

Now technology dramatically changed, what is the change of the city?

Some old infrastucture were abandoned, Some were changed their original funciton. What it will be in future?
Where is the best place for public housing?  How to reuse the infrastructure to enhance the quality of living environment?
What kind of infrastructure influence the food accessibility the most?

 

TOPIC: Analysis and visual display of the context.

 

INPUT:   Static data like building code from city of chicago

Dynamic data collection from ARDUINO

PROCESSING: Date base of the environment.

OUTPUT:  AR, VR Display of the context.

World’s First Augmented Reality Architecture Application : Sara

Developed by Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) in partnership with IN10 Communicatie and Layar, Sara is the world’s first augmented reality architecture application. Users of the technology simply hold up their smartphone to see photos, video, 3D models, scale models and other details about buildings currently in site as well as those from the past and any planned for the future. Although it’s still under construction, those with the app can view a 3D model of how the finished building will look.

SARA also allows users to add their own information about any building or map tours of their favourite architecture. The technology was launched last month on the Layar platform and will be downloadable from the Apple App Store and Android Market. The world’s first building to appear in three dimensions on the smartphone via augmented reality is the eye-catching Market Hall ( featured here on Freshome )which is currently under construction in Rotterdam ’s Blaak area. In future, SARA is expected to have evolved into a complete national architecture guide.

 

Augmented reality architecture in japan

The digital production company Qosmo teamed up terada design architects to create N Building,
a commercial tower in Tokyo that has an augmented reality facade. the two companies collaborated
to design a facade using two-dimensional QR codes that can be read using a mobile phone. users can
point their device at the building and see up to date info from all the shops within. Qosmo also
developed an iPhone application that allows people to see comments left by users, browse shop info
and even download coupons. the comments are tagged through twitter using GPS and are continuously
updated.

It’s really an amazing idea!

Is every building in cities will be like this in future?
