This project addresses the need to be prepared for a large-scale emergency crowd evacuation from Lane Stadium. A real-time crowd simulation system based on an accurate 3D model of Lane stadium will be implemented as well as an emergency evacuation plan with real-time crowd simulation for different emergency scenarios, like lightening or a bomb threat.
Initially conceptualized as a response to solar shading needs, the design for the Flower Wall was inspired by the natural beauty of phototropic response from flowers, such as a sunflower or morning glory.
L2Ork (pronounced as lohrk) stands for Linux Laptop Orchestra, World’s first orchestra of its kind built on Linux. Building upon the foundation established by PLOrk andSLOrk, L2Ork was founded by Dr Ivica Ico Bukvic in May 2009, as part of Virginia TechMusic Department’s Digital Interactive Sound & Intermedia Studio (DISIS).
Interactive 3D animation of human figures is very common in video games, animation studios and virtual environments. However, it is difficult to produce full body animation that looks realistic enough to be comparable to studio quality human motion data. The commercial motion capture systems are expensive and not suitable for capture in everyday environments. Real-time requirements tend to reduce quality of animation.
