(Català) Open Light Motion

Open Light Motion

Open Light Motion, by Lot Amorós, is one of the three projects awarded with a grant to do a residence in the Interactive Lab of Hangar in 2016.
Open Light Motion is a project created to do tracking of drones and/or objects in motion in real time, within a defined environment. It aims to build a net of devices (cameras + communications) to be put in any space -indoor or outdoor- and be able to accurately find an object in a 3d space from 2d camera images.
Initially designed for drones, this system can be applied to any project that needs precise and low latency 3d placement, such as virtual reality, robotics, etc. The processing will be directly done in Pixy/cmucam5 cameras. With this technology, some interaction experiments with smalls unmanned aerial vehicles will be done at the end of the residence.
The main goal is to make out the “drone caves”, which can be seen in the videos of acrobatic drones of the ETH Zurich or the Pensilvania University. These are expensive systems -usually more than 100.000 €-, so Open Light Motion aspire to reduce this amount below 1.000 €, besides building an open software and hardware ecosystem.

Lot Amorós, information systems engineer and transdisciplinar artist, works around the world. He creates data view interface, performances in mixed reality and interactive audiovisual instruments. He has worked with installations in residence and digital art competitions, such as EVA projects in Sao Paulo and Argmented Airspace at El Cairo. In 2012, he has developed his project Guerrilla Drone in Holland, and since then, all his projects are focused in the aerial space.
