Projects used for the exhibitions :
1. Project 1: Human Pose Estimation with PoseNet and TensorFlow.js
This project let you explore pictures in a fun new way. You turn on your webcam and move around, and the computer pulls up the pictures of poses that match yours in real time. With this human pose detection, we can further implement it with Machine Learning to further recognize the sequence of human movement and predict the next movement. For example, with sequential human pose recognition, we can predict person whom tend to have a movement like a criminal.
2. Project 2: Rock, Paper and Stone Game
A machine learning-based rock-paper-scissors game using Raspberry Pi where you play against the computer. When a game begins, a countdown tells the player when to begin. A camera sees whether the player plays rock, paper, or scissors and the computer announces the winner.
3. Project 3: Unicycle
A unicycle was designed and implemented by student from Vincent Mary School of Engineering. The unicycle can be balanced by itself in a single axis direction. It used a gyroscope as a sensor to keep itself in balanced posture. A rider and get on unicycle and ride on it too, leaning forward is going straight, while leaning backward is to stop or braking.
