Cross-Reality Demonstration


We can use sensor networks as a way of building a comprehensive picture of a physical space to transmit a sense of that space into a virtual environment. In this project, we use the Spinner sensor nodes to capture video, audio, and environmental information. This information is used to build an interactive three-dimensional space in Second Life that makes it easy to explore the history of any sensor node, as well as interact live using text and audio with people at any of the nodes. Avatars� virtual presence near nodes is also shown on the physical nodes, so visitors to the physical space know when there are virtual visitors nearby.
