Stockholm in the summer

Stockholm in the summer – 10.08.2015

This post is intended to give you some impressions from Stockholm in the summer.
As i moved to the city and had some weeks off before my classes at university started
i had the opportunity to dive into the city and take some pictures from its beauty.

Everything is close to the water.  A big lake to the west and the baltic sea to the east.

Independently where you are in Stockholm it is only a short trip to its surrounding nature.

The vasa museum shows a warship from the 16th century that sank on its maiden voyage.

In the summer people try to make most out of the sun they can, here at a skate contest.

Stockholm is also famous for its well designed subway stations, here “Kungsträdgården”.

Computer Vision supported Robot Card Game

A university project as part of my master studies was to develop
a application for the NAO Robot, enabling him with computer vision
technology to play the card game Blackjack against a human person.
The robot was detecting the game card on the table and recognize
the correct card values through a feature detection algorithm.
He expressed his decisions with speech and gestures.
The project was done in about three month by three people in summary.

The project code is hosted on github:

Written in Python by using OpenCV and Numpy.

Guest Lecturer at SAE Institute Stuttgart

I am happy that I am able to get my first experience as lecturer this summer.
I will give two courses about advanced game programming techniques at the
SAE Institute Stuttgart.

In the first course i will work with my students on recent releases
of the game industry like Virtual Reality Glasses e.g. the Oculus Rift
or alternative input methods like gesture control etc.

In the second course we will examine the needs for a basic game
engine together and write a simplified version live in the class.

Looking forward to it!
