Day 30 (8/16)

Today I finished up with working with Blender and DIRSIG. I got some help from Rolo, and now I have the final images in Envi with material properties. Its really good I know how to use DIRSIG now and it seems to be an amazing program. I also worked on my presentation and made final adjustments on my SUMO program.

My blog is going to be shorter then usual today, because I pretty much did the same thing as yesterday, found out some new settings and ways to do things with SUMO, and worked on my presentation.

Day 27 (8/11)

Today I worked some more with blender and did more screen shots for Rolo. Then I worked with SUMO to make it more visually appealing and I changed some of the minor settings and code. After a nice picnic for the science department we went on a trip to the George Eastman House. It was so cool to see the really old images that they work with, and how in the future they hope to be able to fix the images under a microscope. After the field trip I got a lot done with my presentation. And now I get to finally go home.

Day 26 (8/10)

Today I worked some with blender and learned a lot about cmd prompt thanks to Kevin! I also worked more with SUMO and understood that the visual "errors" we actually supposed to be there and now I know hows to change the settings on it. I added a bus and an 18 wheeler to the simulation to see how to acceleration and length of a 18 wheeler compared to the car would affect the overall simulation. I also worked on my powerpoint and got some good tips from Rolo on what I should include that I was missing.

Day 25 (8/9)

Its hard to believe that we only have ten days left! Today I started with the blender stuff Rolo wanted me to do. I hit a roadblock with that and he was no where to be found. So I moved on to SUMO. Now I have 18 cars and 15 of them interact with eachother. Watch it here! . After that I continued to work on my final presentation and its coming along well.

Today I worked some more with SUMO and the cars. Later in the day I did some blender stuff for Rolo, i'm not done with that yet but should finish Monday. I also worked on my final presentation. We also saw a presentation on 3-D imaging and how they do it. It was very interesting.

Day 23 (8/5)

Today I got up to three cars on my map! I got two that follow a certain path and one that follows a path and stops at a red light and goes when it turns green. I also worked on my final project today. Tomorrow is going to be another busy day!

Day 22 (8/4)

Today was the best day ever. I found out how to get the car to run on the RIT campus! The only thing is it acts like it "goes under" the road at some points. But at least I know how to do that now. I also did an experiment with the visual perception group. I wore a eye tracker and i played Modern Warfare 2 for a half hour. Then we played volleyball at the end of the day. After that I came back in and did a little more work with SUMO.

Day 21 (8/3)

Today was a very good day! I finally got the car to work the whole time in the examples and I also got the RIT campus map up! All I need now is the route files to tell the cars where to go. This is gonna be difficult seeing as I have to look thru a 33 thousand line code to try to correspond the edges with the map. After the short meeting about the collect and what we will do with the data there was a fire alarm! Then campus safety said it was safe to go in and the fire alarm went off again. Overall a great day.

Day 20 (8/2)

Its hard to believe its already August! Today I worked with SUMO and the model of the RIT campus. This was made a lot easier thanks to open street map. It pretty much creates all the node and edge files for you so all you have to do it make the configuration and route files. I got the car to appear today! But only for a split second. Even the smallest mistake in the amount of spaces and placement of quotations and parenthesis can mess up everything. I hope to finish the route files tomorrow and get the car to appear for more then 1 second!
