Neo: Virtual Object Modeling using Commodity Hardware
AuthorBye Nilsen, Thomas
Recent developments in augmented reality technology have paved way for newapplications in a wide range of areas. These include the commercial markets,medicine applications, military applications and education. The technology pro-vides immersive images to enhance our perception of the world. Augmentedreality addresses challenges related to problem-solving by seamlessly integrat-ing digital images into real-world images.In the context of construction and maintenance industry, project inspections canbe time-consuming and tedious. These inspections involve usages of expensiveand specialized hardware. Some inspections even use physical blueprints anddrawings along with standardized measurement tools. This approach can posepractical challenges and be prone to errors.In this thesis we present Neo, a surface reconstruction system on commodityhardware. It utilizes augmented reality technology by scanning physical sur-roundings and reconstructs them as virtual objects. They are displayed on topof the camera’s live preview of the real world. By using a pipeline architecturewe model the physical surroundings in terms of their shapes and visual appear-ances. Cyber-physical information about the reconstructed virtual models areannotated in real-time. Evaluations of the system show us potentials to createrealistic copies of physical objects

Implementing an electronic health record in a Nigerian secondary healthcare facility. Prospects and challenges Attah, Ambrose Ojadale (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-11-02)Nigeria is witnessing continuing advocacy and increase in number of individuals yearning for computerization of health information and healthcare processes. However, little is known about the opinions of the diverse healthcare providers who would ensure the successful implementation and meaningful use of health information technology in the country (Adeleke, Erinle et al. 2015). This study explores ...
Viken Valvåg, Steffen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2012-01-30)MapReduce has become a widely employed programming model for large-scale data-intensive computations. Traditional MapReduce engines employ dynamic routing of data as a core mechanism for fault tolerance and load balancing. An alternative mechanism is static routing, which reduces the need to store temporary copies of intermediate data, but requires a tighter coupling between the components for ...
Magnussen, Nikolai Åsen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-01)Recent developments in microservices architecture and building have lead to the advent of unikernels, a specialized operating system kernel coupled with, and executing only, a single application. This thesis presents PPCE a distributed system utilising a microservices architecture based on unikernels, created to enable privacy-preserving computing for users, classes of users, and more importantly; ...
