The Motion Capture System

Date created
The objective of the Motion Capture System is to capture and simulate the movement of a dancer. Currently, at Simon Fraser University three departments of Computing, Music, and Engineering are intrigued by the project which focuses on studying dance movements and composing or conducting music inspired from these movements. Particularly, these departments are interested in our project since it has the potential to become the initial step of the bigger project involving the three departments. Our goal is to design a real time system which captures the 2D movement of an object (a small doll) and can be utilized as an analysis tool to study the movements of a dancer. The data obtained from the analysis tool can be fed to composition software to create composition data or directed to synthesizer software to generate the corresponding audio sounds.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
