You must have seen RPlidar applied to robots, drones, and autonomous driving! But, have you ever seen it applied to an indoor sports platform?
▲ UNTACT indoor sports platform
The indoor sports platform, called UNTACT, is the world’s first “no-contact” sports equipment that uses the floor as a stage. Users can set different sports themes and modes through the large screen of the app or platform to meet people’s sports, competitive and safety needs for no contact, no wearing, no gathering, and no waiting during the epidemic.
The UNTACT platform is equipped with SLAMTEC RPlidar A3, which uses LiDAR to identify and judge crowd movements within the range of perception, combined with multi-point interaction technology, greatly enriching the interactivity of the sports platform.
▲ Provide interactive games using motion platforms
This is not the first time LiDAR has been applied to such interactive platforms. The principle of previous multi-touch applications is similar to UNTACT, which uses body movement or gestures for human-computer interaction.
▲ Multi-touch application case
Multi-point interaction is a human-computer interaction technology that uses hardware equipment and software rendering. It can be carried out without traditional input devices (such as a mouse, keyboard, etc.), and it can display brilliant interactive pictures on the screen, giving users a tactile and visual experience, auditory and human-computer interaction perception has brought significant impact.
The hardware for image acquisition mainly includes an infrared signal sensor, that is, laser LiDAR, which can locate and capture the movements of “interacting personnel” when projecting infrared rays onto a large screen or the ground, and then analyze and process them. And send the processing result to the rendering server.
Therefore, smart viewers will find that the LiDAR will be installed above or below the multi-point interactive device to locate and capture “actions” to achieve interactive effects.
▲ Use lidar to locate and capture actions
The rendering system mainly includes a projector, whose function is to receive the processing results of the image acquisition subsystem, generate corresponding images, and display them on the screen or the ground through the projector, to achieve the most natural display and interactive effects.
At present, multi-point interaction using actions and multimedia content has become a brand-new interactive method, which has been widely used in enterprise information displays, exhibition hall exhibitions, game interactions, and digital upgrades. This interactive method provides an intuitive and convenient interactive marketing tool, and at the same time allows users to feel the joy of human-computer interaction and technological interaction truly.
