Extracting food intake patterns of young Australian adults

This interdisciplinary project explores the role food prepared outside the home versus within the home plays in the diets of young adults. This original approach is to use our newly designed and tested Smartphone application, that transforms data collection and processing, and continuous digital photography. The IT research of this project is to create novel data mining techniques to advance experts’ understanding about the outlets where young adults buy food,… more

Holoshop is a set of innovative technologies and processes for creating realtime 3D digital content for holograms and other 3D display systems, with virtual tools which enable the direct hand-drawing of subjects, mark by mark. more

Large-Scale 3D Scene Reconstruction

The ability to produce accurate maps is known to be of key importance in most autonomous vehicles tasks, but it can also be useful to increase a person’s awareness of its surrounding. In this project we focus on the real-time generation of 3D surface models based on raw sensor information, and the extraction of meaningful features that can be used in a variety of tasks, such as user localization, object… more

MadMaker: Integrated STEM in the classroom

MadMaker is a 6-week online challenge in which High School students solve STEM activities programming an embedded system, the Arduino Esplora board. The board can detect movement, changes in light and temperature, and control other devices. This online activity is an ideal gentle introduction to show how science, math, technology and engineering are all connected to real-world problems. Video News more

MediaWall

The MediaWall project transforms walls into interactive information displays that people control with gestures. This wall is used for in-the-wild studies on the IT building, as well as diverse commercial deployments in the creative industries, sales, marketing and police control room. more

Monitoring Foetal Body Fat

In-Vitro Measurements of Subcutaneous Fat Currently, there are no cheap, easy to use devices to detect neonatal malnutrition, which increases an infant’s susceptibility to infectious and non infectious diseases following birth. With funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, this device seeks to tackle this problem. News articles: 1. The Australian newspaper 2. The University of Sydney Website more
