viSparsh

Our Project name is viSparsh.This word has been coined by our team. It is a conglomeration of two words namely vision (Vis) & Touch (Sparsh). We felt the name ViSparsh truly depicted the purpose of our project which was to aid the visually impaired people through the sense of Touch. We also thought this as an apt name for our team too whereby the same word would signify our team's aim of touching the lives of several people through our vision.

Hand Gesture Recognition in Android

Gesture Recognition In Android

Introduction
Gestures are a powerful means of communication among humans. In fact, gesturing is so deeply rooted in our communication that people often continue gesturing when speaking on the telephone. Hand gestures provide a separate complementary modality to speech for expressing ones idea. Information associated with hand gestures in a conversation is degree, discourse structure, spatial and temporal structure. So, a natural interaction between humans and computing devices can be achieved by using hand gestures for communication between them.

picoFlamingo

picoFlamingo is a portable presentation solution initially developed for the BeagleBoard and picoDLP projector, but it can be executed in any OpenGL ES 2.0 compliant system. Slides can contain text, images, live video streams, and 3D objects that can be animated in a 3D space and dynamically updated to produce advanced user interfaces. When used in combination with NetKitty, picoFlamingo can be controlled remotely through any Bluetooth or network enabled device. Simple remote control tools for Symbian S60, OpenMoko, and Android 1.5 are included.

CSI-2 & FPGA Acceleration Project

After a Successful extension of TI's ARM Cortex-M3 LM3S9B92 MCU with a FPGA as a Memory Controller Hub and Data Acquisition platform, I'm about to try and do the same work for the PandaBoard!

This Project will convert almost any kind of unsupported / expensive / or "hard to get you hands on" device for the PandaBoard with the Academic $59 DE0-Nano FPGA development board.
Five main interfaces are the main objectives:

1. Memory Mapped GPMC Slave - Half way there (TI's Cortex-M3 EPI is just like the GPMC)
2. CSI-2 Transmitter Core - All relevant specifications obtained!

Panda Class Driver

A Class driver is a type of hardware device driver that can operate a large number of different devices of a broadly similar type. Class drivers are very often used with USB based devices, which share the essential USB protocol in common, and devices with similar functionality can easily adopt common protocols. Instead of having a separate driver for every kind of device, a class driver can operate a wide variety of devices from different manufacturers. To accomplish this, manufacturers make their products compatible with a standardized protocol.

User interface sharing over Wi-Fi between Panda units

This Project aims to synchronize Desktop environment running on one panda board with another panda board over Wi-Fi. The project involves segmentation of the desktop using the effective algorithm and segmented information is structured in custom format. The output of the algorithm is then encoded with the help of efficient encoding method to minimize the need of network resources. The encoded output is sent over Wi-Fi using RTP towards another Wi-Fi terminal, which can decode the input data stream and appropriate display is created.

PANDACLOUD -A Prototype for cloud computing platform on panda board

Use PANDA to create and maintain ad-hoc cloud to provide platform as a service. Today in the
era of smart phones and tablets having a hardware constraint to run any application residing in
your machine is a major drawback. So consider a scenario where you are traveling (Bus/Trains/
Flight), where there are several phones/computational devices, of which while some are highly
active, some may be totally dormant, thus wasting a lot of processing power when there is a need
for it. So having a single PANDA as a controlling device (cloud server) , all the platform could

AVR OTG

< AVR On The Go >

A small, portable AVR programmer*.

*: The programmer shall have a small screen, micro keyboard, autonomous power source and ISP(6/10)pins and JTAG connections to connect with the targets.

It would be on running an embedded Linux distribution and have an environment setup for compiling C/C++ & ASM code for the AVR.
