Traces

Penny, Bernhardt, et al.

A telematic, networked experience.

The Traces Vision System is a custom, versatile and extensible linux based multi camera 3D machine vision system which has been in continual development since 1998, at Carnegie Mellon University, ZKM Karlsruhe, GMD Bonn, and the Arts Electronics Museum of the Future, Linz Austria, by Simon Penny, Andre Bernhardt and others. Originally built as a novel sensing interface for the CAVE (immersive environment), the TVS allows non-encumbering full body sensing for embodied interaction and builds a real-time point-cloud body model at variable temporal and spacial resolutions. It has been employed in a wide range of interactive, immersive and telematic environments and theatrical contexts, in USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Austria and elsewhere. Development is continuing on various client applications, for interactive spatialised sound, telerobotics, avatar generation and other applications.
