Hitting the drums: a velocity computational approach

You now have the positions of the LEDs in every frame. Our goal here is to detect when and which drums were hit so that the corresponding drums can produce their sounds.

Determining when a drum was hit

There are various innovative ways of tracking when the drums are hit. We chose to use a velocity computational approach due to its speed. Using this approach, you can look at the displacement of the LEDs in consecutive frames and calculate the velocity. Using basic physics, if the velocity changes from positive to negative (note that our coordinate system has the positive side of the y-axis pointing downwards) it implies a change in direction of the drumstick, or that a drum was hit. You should be able to figure out approximately which frame the drum was hit in. Since the hit point is returned in terms of two-dimensional coordinates, you can figure out which drum(s) are hit.

Variation in velocity with the movement of the leds

See if you can guess when drums were hit.

Determining which drum was hit

Position of the drums

[1: Cymbal; 2: BigTom; 3: Small Tom; 4: Floor Tom; 4: Snare]

The frame should be broken down into rectangles with assigned x and y coordinates where the drums are positioned. Our drum kit consists of the Crash Cymbal, the Big Tom, the Small Tom, the Floor Tom and the Snare. We check to see if the hit-point falls in the space assigned for any of the drums, and if it does, we move on to producing the sound and displaying the image on the computer screen. However, if the hit point is outside the frame, it is taken as a missed hit.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
