ViconRevue is the wearable digital camera designed to take photos passively without intervention whilst being worn by the user. Based on Microsoft SenseCam technology, Revue is a research tool aimed at researchers as an aid for people with memory loss.
Vicon Revue contains a 1230mAh lithium-ion battery that lasts enough for one-day continuous shot. It is built around a PIC microcontroller. It has:
Vicon Revue stores VGA resolution (640x480) images as compressed .JPG files on the 1GB flash memory card. The typical image size (around 30KB) allows over 30,000 photos to be stored in the camera. ViconRevue has the wide-angle lens with indicator lights and buttons for manual shot and privacy pause. It embeds multiple sensors that tell much details on the environment surrounding the user:
Three letter acronyms above are the ID of the sensing records stored in the ViconRevue memory. Records consist of image files and SENSOR.CSV text file. SENSOR.CSV include the timestamped sensing data of image and above sensors.
I use iPhone to capture the location information using MotionX GPS app. See the example below.
Programmed using PHP for GMail IMAP acccess to monitor all email activities.
Collecting from the phone bill.
Currently using PICASA to identify people face and classification from ViconRevue images. I am considering using Face.com open API for automated face recognition.
