NOTACON 6: Immersive Video: Photogrammetry in Game Development


Speaker: Steve Mokris & John Bowditch

By utilizing recently developed technologies such as 360-degree photography and immersive video, our team can construct accurate models of buildings and other sites that may be considered at risk for terrorist attacks, hostage situations, or other disasters. For example, if a large-scale fire breaks out on the 10th floor of the Cleveland, Ohio 5/3 Center, first responders will be able to navigate through a virtual world representation, and design an appropriate response. While this project is primarily designed for emergency response, the platform can also be used for planning, prevention, and recovery needs. The presentation will consist of a demonstration of the technology used to capture photos and videos, the process of building a virtual world from this visual data, and the current status of the overall project.
