The Image laboratory has quite a bewilderment of equipment and software, some of it usable by all Image Group students and some of it only available to the Image Group staff. However, if the need arise (projects, Masters, PhD or whatever), this equipment can be made available after a previous agreement with an Image Group supervisor.
The Image Laboratory is located in room S010. Admission to this room requires that you are making a project under supervision of one of the teachers within the Image Group, and that you pass a small course in using the equipment. See [#Practical below] for more information.
The hardware in the Image Laboratory consists mainly of computers and robots, but we also has all kinds of different cameras, lamps, video equipment and other bits and pieces. If you cannot find what you are looking for, somebody has probably not put the equipment back after usage!
Here is a short description of the equipment of the current new hardware. If you want a description of the old equipment go to the old.
- Robots: The standard robot is the small Eyebot of which we have tree operational and another loose controller for custom jobs. They are very fragile so handle them with care. [robots/eyebot --Eyebot information--. ] Another robot that we have the the large sled robot. It has a manual attached to it. Follow that if you want to use it. Please mid that the robot table is calibrated and it is therefore NOT a place to put anything - don't sit on it, don't move it and so on.
- We have five computers: Kjeld - the sled robot and Basler cameras. Arne - graphics computer (linux and xp). Fernando - Graphics (xp). Preben - Graphics, Basler (xp) and RobotCtl - Eyebots (linux).
- All computers in the Image Lab is on the student network. So use your own account to access the rest of the world through the proxy.
We have various types of software at our disposal. If you need some special program, please make a request with your Image Group supervisor.
Due to the high amount of expensive equipment located in the Image Laboratory, we do require that the door is always kept locked. This implies that one needs a key to gain access to the Laboratory. Before that key is handed out, we require that student have passed a small course in the use of the equipment they are going to use. When there are many different Image courses, it can get crowded in the small room. We have a ultra high-tech reservation system to cope with that. More about that in the rules, see below.
