Sound Prototyping Tool

The Sound Prototyping Tool is an internal tool created for the Sound of Vision project. It is used for creating and testing different sounds rendering models of custom defined 3D virtual scenes that mimic some of the real world situations visually impaired people might face. The tool is used to perform, save and model various sound tests. It also represents a great base which can be extended for other sound rendering related tasks, like headphone quality testing, HRTF testing, etc.

Verification of visual odometry algorithms with an OpenGL-based software tool

Authors: Piotr Skulimowski and Pawel Strumillo Abstract: We present a software tool called a stereovision egomotion sequence generator that was developed for testing visual odometry (VO) algorithms. Various approaches to single and multicamera VO algorithms are reviewed first, and then a reference VO algorithm that has served to demonstrate the program’s features is described. The program offers… Continue Reading Verification of visual odometry algorithms with an OpenGL-based software tool
