title Application and evaluation of digital image techniques in close range photogrammetry
source University of Innsbruck
summary Most of the orthomapping techniques that are used in the present are restricted to surfaces that arise from a function of 'ground co- ordinates' z = f (x, y) , so-called 2.5D objects. Some techniques are also restricted to surfaces with kind of smooth shape or even to regular surfaces, but all of them are established to rectify images (although increasingly digitally). A new approach has been established for digital restitution and orthomapping of close range objects of almost any shape and size and with almost no restriction to images or objects. The idea of this approach is an inversion of the photographic technique and is (on the contrary to the 'rectification approach') strictly object oriented. All of the objects are regarded to be describable in their geometrical shape by a number of particular faces that can be regular or irregular but can anyway be created in a CAD environment. The data needed to get this surface can come from any photogrammetric, tachometric or other source with any particular one wants to have for the results. All the details that lie on that surface don't have to be restituted by analog or analytical point measurement but can after that be projected onto this surface from any photo, from any side and with any camera they have been taken. A 'Digital Projector' does the projection of the photos from the same positions and with the same inner orientation as of photographic camera. Using this approach any measurements of any details on the facades can be done easily. No details of the object can be neglected, none can be forgotten, no prior filtering of details has preceded this using. The full information of the original photos is available in the results. The results of the restitution can be presented in many ways. One of them is create orthoimages in any scale. Other results are any perspective or parallel view of the object. Other use of the strict 3D map-covered object for visualization (e.g. in architecture and archaeology application) is possible

title Human-Computer Interaction in the Form-Making Process
source P. Janssen, P. Loh, A. Raonic, M. A. Schnabel (eds.), Protocols, Flows, and Glitches - Proceedings of the 22nd CAADRIA Conference, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China, 5-8 April 2017, pp. 529-538
summary Many elements of architectural design are becoming automated, and the boundaries between design, construction, and use are increasingly blurred. These developments have produced concerns that our design processes might outrun "human factors" in our search for novelty and automation. At the same time, however, this new technology can also improve our opportunities to develop human-centric environments. This paper describes the creation of an interactive form-making exhibit called ROBOBBLE, and the use of this installation to engage users in design while collecting data about their architectural preferences. The ultimate goal of the ongoing project is to learn more about human form creation and architectural evaluations, and to integrate those findings into computational design algorithms and pre-design toolkits. A pilot study was conducted to test ROBOBBLE as a data-collection platform and to evaluate interactive form-making engagement among a small group of students. The platform was shown to be successful in engaging all of the participants in this pilot study and expanding their creative design capacities over time. Future work using ROBOBBLE for larger population studies has the potential to produce detailed data about a wide variety of design preferences, and to incorporate this data directly into computational design process.

title Craft and Digital Consequences - Micro-Hybrid Explorations at (Full) Scale
source Fioravanti, A, Cursi, S, Elahmar, S, Gargaro, S, Loffreda, G, Novembri, G, Trento, A (eds.), ShoCK! - Sharing Computational Knowledge! - Proceedings of the 35th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, 20-22 September 2017, pp. 327-336
summary This paper presents a comprehensive project-based research investigation that uses both drawing and modeling to challenge conventional design space. Situated at the University of Kentucky-College of Design Applied Computation Center (CoDACC) in Lexington, KY, this independent undergraduate research project reveals an immersive framework that develops, evaluates, and assesses both graphic and three-dimensional information at full scale. This research provides a framework that seamlessly negotiates analog and digital means of communication and prototyping. This paper outlines the micro-hybrid design process to frame topics germane to today's increasingly complex built environment. The paper also includes the micro-hybrid decision-making matrix and discusses the evaluation of the produced artifacts. The research demonstrates how the micro-hybrid process can reveal both the craft and consequences related to design experimentation and construction. Further, the micro-hybrid process has been shown to deepen a student's understanding of the composition of materials and a student's awareness of forces and structural loads, which in turn has produced a deeper appreciation for the principles of structures and an improved mastery of manufacturing jointing details.

title Ro-Puzzle - A robotic proposal for moving architecture
source D. Holzer, W. Nakapan, A. Globa, I. Koh (eds.), RE: Anthropocene, Design in the Age of Humans - Proceedings of the 25th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 5-6 August 2020, pp. 433-442
summary This paper presents a project-based research study called Ro-puzzle-a robotic architectural "puzzle," using robotic solutions to illustrate the possibility of an animated/dynamic architectural composition and configurations in the physical world. Through studying super-comportment (Wiscombe, 2014) in both dynamic and static scenarios, this research proposes a new reading to the traditional robotic task of "pick-and-place", through an intuitive motion design process using a custom-made bridge software, Oriole. By revisiting the notion of robotics in the field of design/architecture, Ro-Puzzle investigates the design possibilities of robotics, not merely as fabrication tools, but possibly as physical extensions of the design software into the physical world of architecture, and as a way to expand the digital design imaginations/possibilities beyond the digital screens. In this manuscript and initially tested at the desktop scale, Ro-Puzzle research investigation demonstrated the possibilities of robots as architectural "components" within the architecture/building. This research shows that through the development of custom software/hardware platforms, it is possible to domesticize robotic technology as an active agent in the design process through physical simulation.

title No Keyboard, No Mouse - Hybrid Digital-Analog Hardware Design for Enhancing Design UI and UX
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 535-544
summary This paper presents a mixed-method research design investigation that integrates a Hybrid Digital-Analog Software-Hardware protocol referred to as the No Keyboard, No Mouse (NK-NM) platform. The NK-NM process uses both theoretical and applied research mechanisms to measure its influence on architectural design decision-making, knowledge exchange, student learning, aesthetics, and user experience in the context of an undergraduate architectural design studio. Observing a recognized gap in the current digital architectural design environments this paper details how the NK-NM protocol bridges this gap through an instructed hierarchical design process, customizable physical interface, and iterative simulation-based feedback loop.

title Robotically Augmented Imaging (RAI Alpha)
source ACADIA 19:UBIQUITY AND AUTONOMY [Proceedings of the 39th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-578-59179-7] (The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, Austin, Texas 21-26 October, 2019) pp. 352-359
summary This paper presents a project-based research study in the design studio context, highlighting the use of robotic technology as a “perspective-machine” to create custom spatial readings/experiences through predetermined and controlled static/dynamic views. The early studies of this method—in this paper referred to as Robotically Augmented Imaging (RAI Alpha), enables architects, designers, and students to micro direct the “spatial experience” and atmospheric effects of the project through visual story-telling and in multiscale set-ups ranging from architectural to product and object scale. Demonstrating the contemporary opportunities of imaging and perspective—as an architectural tool to investigate/define the space—RAI Alpha studies the potentials of robotically controlled/manipulated views as a possible new medium for interacting with form, space, architecture, atmosphere, and performance in a scale-free seamless experience and as both a design tool and a product.

title Oriole A Parametric Solution for Animation-Based Robotic Motion Design
source Ji-Hyun Lee (Eds.) "Hello, Culture!"  [18th International Conference, CAAD Futures 2019, Proceedings / ISBN 978-89-89453-05-5] Daejeon, Korea, p. 132
summary This paper presents a project-based research study using Oriole—a custom-made plug-in for robotic motion control solutions in grasshopper 3D visual programming environment. Oriole is a parametric tool that enables users/designers to design robotic motion-paths, based on the notion of keyframing and animation. Using Oriole, designers are able to simulate—and ultimately develop robotic movements in more intuitive free-form ways. Using Rhino 3D as a digital modeling platform and Grasshopper 3D and its robotic simulation platforms for different industrial robots such as KUKA, ABB, and Universal, Oriole enables designers to create a precise interaction between the robot, its spatial “performance” and the physical environment through animation.

title Oriole Beta - A Parametric Solution for Robotic Motion Design Using Animation
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 2, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 227-234
summary This paper presents a project-based research study using the beta version of Oriole-a custom-made animation-based plug-in for grasshopper 3D visual programming environment, to develop robotic motion/controlling solutions. Oriole, as a parametric tool, makes it possible for designers/users to "design"-instead of generating, the motions of the robot based on the notion of keyframing and time-based animation. Through the use of Oriole, users can simulate-and ultimately develop robotic motions/performances in more intuitive ways. This unique feature enables users with minor or no programming background to create robotic solutions using Oriole as a software/plugin Bridge.Using Rhinoceros 3D as a digital modeling platform in conjunction with Grasshopper 3D and its robotic simulation platforms, Oriole can develop controlling strategies for different industrial robots such as KUKA, ABB, and Universal Robots. Oriole enables designers to create a precise interaction between the robot, its spatial "performance" and the physical environment, through animation and keyframing to "design" robotic interactions and movements as frames of animation instead of segments of a curve "path."
