Daniel Sauter + Jesus Duran: Ketai in Motion
The variety of sensors built in 4th generation mobile devices offer new ways to interact with applications and services. Focusing on motion detection and image processing, Ketai in Motion is a research project that aims at capturing, processing, and interpreting multiple streams or sensory data. The presentation will feature the first release of the Ketai library for processing, and outline future development.
