Avce Ict Unit 19Watch
is ne1 else stuck on finding things for task 2? we are finding it really hard, wondering if any1 had found anything?
researching the latest in robotics and artificial intelligence
the use of robots as:-
a.) air stewards
b.)cleaners and maintenence "staff"
c.)engineers making internal and external repairs to the space craft.
this collage is realy gud, they have a lot of info
i mean.. it take it this is a girl right???
only girls are this unorganised!
sorry! cant help ya! apart from, look at your specifications!
This unit should be a joy for anyone interested in SciFi
Firstly u are looking at the subject in the wrong way. and as such u cannot find anything.
Lets take airstewards in a space flight searching for info on the internet won't bring many hits!
k Firstly identify what they do
then can you think of anything that is about that can do that now.
So what do airstewards do firstly they
meet and greet the passengers
whats involved there
recognising a ticket or a person
then directing them to their seat.
so technology wise we have at airports at the moment face recognition for terrorists which match known faces this will alert customs to the possibility of stopping that person
so make your airsteward have this ability you don't have tyo say how just that itdoes exist.
can machines talk now?
sure they can think of all of the voice recognition systems that phone call centres are using. Modern call centres can direct you by your voice to the correct service its more advanced than the press button 1 for sales press button 2 for accounts etc.
For goodness sake you can do that with your mobiles now dialin a m8 at a voice command (look up voice recognition on the net) aparently a voice is like a finger print takes 5-10 seconds to reconise and can be done from the other side of the world. As far as you are concerned your passenger can introduce him/herself to the robot identification would take place it could speak (creative sound blaster cards have this abiity for year)
This is an easy unit folks if you break the tasks down as above and think of what can be done now.
Have you seen the minority report?
Here Reaves is using a control room to control the computer. IT is a hologram by touching the menus in front of him it is just like using your mouse. except that is 2 dimensional the icons are just coloured dots on a screen but it apparently allows you to start and control your computer. k how do you control something in front of your face think of the mimio white board that uses ultra sound to note the postion of the marker think of the smart board where you can use a finger to draw and control the menus.
Its not such a leap of faith is it to see a more sophisticated laser show that can display a desktop in front of you rather that xmas decorations in the sky.
Anyone see Spy Game with Robert Redford the other week on Sky. The americans use the mission board to track and display threats on a perspex like board that is often seen in submarine control rooms but these are computer generated and can display what they want this is available now.
One of my students said about message board. Hope this has been a little help. Graham
Oh by the way think of the apache helicopter it has a HUD (head up displayand the facility to track the eye movement this allows the gatling gun to track where ever he looks (task 4) try a search for heat seeking another of my students found an excellent site with methods I'd never dreamed of for locating targets
you men go cruising in ya 306
i will stay at home and eat pot noodle
i sooooo wanna be like you..
Come back when u got a phat car
