Title:


    A method for automatically aligning projection mapping systems

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 01


Description:


    By creating an overlapped array of projected images, we can use projection technology to create truly seamless displays with resolutions that can scale up to tens of millions of pixels. Projection also lets us map these displays onto any surface, regardless of its shape or material.

    A major obstacle to implementing these displays has been aligning and maintaining the display. There are commercially available automatic tools that configure and maintain projection systems on smooth, continuous surfaces (e.g. flat, cylindrical, spherical) but there are no tools that can align and maintain a display in a more complex projection mapping application without strong limitations placed on the system (and even that is assuming a simple canvas shape and correcting to the camera’s perspective).
