There are a huge number
of applications where a system like this could be used for, when
it is fully optimized and constructed. One such application could
be for the military. In the past, there have been some excellent
missiles which are guided by 2D terrain images. If this was extended
with a system such as this to 3D, it would have incredible capabilities
The main application
I was looking at during the construction of the electronics though
was a basic robotic device. Such a device could be extended to
be capable of finding an object and where it is in a scene, adding
to a virtual model of an object, and recognizing what an object
A robotic device with those capabilities could certainly be of
help to someone who is blind – to help them locate objects
and warn of obstacles.
In the future, I would like to extend this project possibly into
the fields of motion and sound, as well as object recognition.
