    • Inexpensive Head Tracking for use with Large High-Resolution Displays 

      Simonsson, Carl Erik Joakim (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-06-01)
      This thesis investigates how head tracking can be implemented by using inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware for a 6 x 3 meter high-resolution display wall. The tracking system has been integrated into to an existing event system, Shout, that allows for inter-program communication. An application called htsim has been developed that is used for testing different head tracking configurations in a ...
    • Breathing as user interface for pulmonary rehabilitation : respiration tracking using the Wii remote controller 

      Guirao Aguilar, Julian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-06-01)
      INTRODUCTION: Respiration exercises are an important part of the pulmonary rehabilitation in COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) patients. Furthermore, there is evidence that showing feedback about their respiration pattern helps them to improve their breathing skills. This study tests the feasibility of monitoring respiration using the Wiimote's infrared camera and showing BPM (breaths per ...
    • Time constrained video playback 

      Larsen, Webjørn Ivar (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-06-08)
      The duration of video playlists, might be a problem when watching on mobile devices, while on the go. We are exploring the problem of how to reduce the size of a video playlist, while maintain the important parts of the videoclips in the playlist. We have designed algorithms that automatically can cut down a playlist by cutting the duration of clips or sometimes even removing clips. We have shown ...
    • A scalable, interactive widget library for visualizing biological data 

      Johansen, Terje Andre (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-06)
      In biology the introduction next generation technology is increasing the amount of data generated rapidly. New sequencing machines are able to produce terabytes of genomic data in days and in later years the cost of storing data has become higher than to produce it. With enormous amounts of data arrives great opportunities, but also new challenges; how should biologists analyze and interpret the ...
    • Detecting events in videos using semantic analytics of subtitles 

      Leer, Erik Bræck (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-06)
      Recently, television broadcasters such as the NRK and TV2 channels, have begun offering live internet television and movie archive along with their regular schedule, much like the known video archives such as Youtube and Vimeo. The amount of all television offered reduces the ability of the user to get an overview of the programs that are available at any given time, making the user will probably ...
    • Summarizing image collections 

      Sundby, David (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-06-01)
      The widespread use of digital cameras and mobile phones, along with a rapidly growth of image sharing, challenges current image retrieval techniques. It is difficult for image retrieval system to find the semantic meaning of images based on human’s subjectivity and the size of current image databases makes it difficult to organize and search images. This thesis shows that information retrieval ...
    • Real-time annotation of video streams using staged processing 

      Holmstad, Øyvind (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-06-01)
      Real-time media rich applications rely on live streams of rich and accurate meta-data describing the video content to provide personal user experiences. Unfortunately, the general amount of video meta-data today is often limited to titles, synopsis and a few keywords. A wildly used approach for extraction of meta-data from video is computer vision. It has been developed a number of different ...
    • A prototype system for context sensitive communication in hospitals based on an Ascom/trixbox experimental platform 

      Gironi, Lorenzo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-06-01)
      Hospital's communication infrastructure suffers from different types of common problems. Currently, this infrastructure relies mainly on the use of pagers which are devices particularly interruptive for the daily work of hospital's workers, and moreover they do not support context-awareness communication. Wireless phones are supposed to be a valid alternative to pagers and they can also be used to ...
    • Javza : a runtime supporting dynamic app configuration and integration in asymmetric systems 

      Gjerdrum, Anders Tungeland (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-07-06)
      The advent of cloud computing alongside with pervasive form factors such as smart devices, introduces a new meaning to asymmetric system models. These new clients act as a presentational layer alleviating much of the computational and storage concerns to cloud services. The application platforms associated with these creates new opportunities for third party developers to provide domain specific ...
    • A Video storage management system for soccer analytics 

      Hansen, Roger Bruun Asp (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-12-18)
      Video is dominating consumer internet traffic. Restless internet users expect smooth playback and low latency when watching video content and vendors risk losing customers if this cannot be provided. Distributed storage systems specialized for delivering video content and for handling the high traffic this lead to, have been developed over many years. This thesis look into building and deploying a ...

    • Reconstructing Omni-kernel control flow 

      Haugen, Christopher (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-12-15)
      Today, with the prevalence of many- and multi-core systems has it been sparked a new interest for programming models that permits developer to exploit their resources. This has sparked renewed interest in creating larger event-based systems, systems where stack ripping occurs and with an obfuscated control flow. Both increases the complexity of debugging errors. During the development of the ...
