All this week João Freire from IDMind has been working on the protoFROG Campus robot here at the University of Twente. His colleagues, Carlos Marques and André Almeida can be seen in the laptop screen. They were working from Lisbon via Skype to get the content that was prepared by the Marketing & Communications department of the university for the Royal opening of the Gallery.
Here we can see Paulo Alvito, an important member of the FROG consortium, reflected in the touchscreen of the proto-FROG. This was taken in March 2014 – IDMind had just completed the configuration of the UT Campus robot ready for the Hannover Messe.
Researchers enjoyed some harmless fun while waiting for feedback from the reviewers. Here, Dariu Gavrila can be seen on Jie Shen’s laptop screen. Jie was demonstrating mask overlays – an option he has added to Imperial’s face tracking software.
Dariu, who once told the project manager she was “too nice a person to make a threat really scary for someone actually born in Transsylvania” like himself, couldn’t wait to try the Dracula mask.
Here we can see Luis Merino, an important member of the FROG consortium, reflected in the screen of a laptop, over a navigation map. This photo was taken in the Royal Alcázar in Seville in May 2013 – the UPO team was testing their location/navigation module while Imperial tested their face recognition module.
