MAKER: From 2-D Projective Geometry to 3-D Object Recognition and 3-D Printing Processes for High School Students
Additional Document Info
American Society for Engineering Education, 2016. This paper describes the process on learning to apply the concepts of Projective Geometry by the use cameras to capture images of a scene and using those images to calculate the location of a given object within a defined space. Once the concepts of 2D Projective Geometry are understood, Autodesk's 123D Catch software will be used to reconstruct 3D objects in a planar environment. The process will consist of the use of digital cameras to capture varying angles and distances of a pinpointed object so that projective geometry calculations can create a 3D model of the given object. The 123D Catch demonstration will help support concepts in Computer Vision and SLAM programming.
