basic goal of this project is to build a video editor controllable
from a haptic input device, but it is also an offshoot of the
general control streaming media using haptics. Even though it
is implemented as a video editor project some effort was made
to make it a generalized and reusable base for other projects.
- To connect haptic input to a streaming media application.
- To be open and easily modified to fit the needs of research.
As currently built there are two parts to
this project. A modified version
(Kino-mod) of Kino,
an Open Source DV editor for linux, and a control program, gtkClient
being the most complete variant. The two parts are connected using
The ACE ORB a CORBA implementation
that has real time support. We also have been using TAO
to connect to haptic devices locally or over a network.
A more detailed overview of the software architecture
is linked to here.
