ICT 2013

November 21st, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

The ICT 2013 event was held at the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre LITEXPO in Vilnius from the 6-8 November 2013 and represented a unique opportunity for projects and companies to showcase their research, ICT products and innovative creations. The VENTURI stand was one of the 200+ exhibits which covered a diverse set of research results and products, ranging from cars and advanced robots to very small components, software, new business or new services.
The exhibition is grouped according to 5 themes
* digitally empowered citizens; – Putting the individual in the centre.
* smart and sustainable cities for 2020+; – Putting the city in the centre.
* industry and business for tomorrow; – Putting the competitiveness of European industry in the centre.
* intelligent connecting intelligence; – Putting networking, interfacing, integration in the centre.
* culture, science and creativity. – Putting content in the centre.

The VENTURI demo, in the “culture, science and creativity” theme, consisted of a software and hardware technology showcase woven into the form of an AR game experience on a table-top miniature city. The player accomplishes a set of missions (i.e. burger deliveries in a limited time), by steering a virtual car with a mobile AR device through the real city. Spatial 3D audio effects add to the immersive experience of the game. The demonstration showed state-of-the-art real-time markerless 3D tracking on a mobile device. Visual feature extraction/tracking and advanced hardware sensor data fusion algorithms are exploited to provide a high level of robustness and performance. The city model was geometrically reconstructed in a prior offline stage: a 3D map of sparse feature points is used for efficient tracking, whilst a watertight 3D model of the city facilitates precise occlusion handling and collision detection.
