Workshop about new functionalities

Friday, July 10th, 2009 | Uncategorized

Thursday the 2nd of July it was time to test and try out the latest versions of the @aGlance technologies.



So, the developers from Computer Science and The Alexandra Institute invited the festival people to Aarhus. For several hours they discussed workable functionalities, essential features and “nice-to-haves” – last mentioned covers the bunch of wild ideas… It was a great – and warm – evening.

The technologies and their integration worked. The signals from handheld devices round the University area showed up in Topos and we could interact with the cameras.

Our main focus was discussions about the latest functionalities:

  • A new video browser to support overview of cameras
  • Tracking of 20 radios and 10-15 phones (this evening we only had 5 radios and 5 phones – and they were all “alive” and running)
  • A smaller map in the 3D environment showing the section the personnel with handheld devices can see on their device
  • Activity indication: flow of guests at the festival place – the predominant flow of movement within a certain grid. How to show/present it needs to be tested before and at the festival.
  • A simple way to search and find a bar, stallor  tent
  • Marking points of interest and how to show/present it
  • Support verbal communication with the possibility to draw in the 3D environment
