Proposed by Dash and Jarrett
How do we move forward?
Test phase I
Finish phase I by deadline for Imagine RIT
Make a prototype for phase II
decide on design
small scale tests?
Group Requirements for Phase II
LED's with In
No use in using UV light due the camera not being able to pick up
most of the light reflecting off.
Camera needs to be 264mm away from the ground and needs the
proper mount on a rigid structure.
Lights must be equidistant from the subject.
The structure needs to be quick and flexible to other requirements.
Camera needs to be compatible with Lab
Color Science Dome (desertdome.com)
Half Arc Concept
Geodesic Color Science Dome
easy to assemble
relatively cheap (roughly $100 from desertdomes.com)
easy to adapt for our specific use
1 meter diameter (customizable)
uses approximately 24 lights
Rotating Half Arc
Relatively not complex wiring
Quicker PTM process than the
rotating arm but slower than the
color science dome due to the
automation (180 degree rotation)
Uses 7 lights
Rotating Arm Design
Rotating arm that descends from the camera to the ground covering the angles
necessary for lights on the PTM.
Also the flexibility of the single arm can photograph sections of larger objects
rather than being constricted to the radius of the arm.
Uses 3 light points will be configured to the arm and be able to show IR lighting.
The automation and mechanical part for attaching the arm is complicated
