HCIL - Project Thermo


alt text alt text

Project Thermo reliably creates thermographic panoramas of indoor locations in order to identify energy inefficiencies in rooms and buildings.

I worked on this project as a volunteer at the Human Computer Interaction lab at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The software I wrote was integrated into a self-contained device which could take a series of thermographic images over the course of several days in order to map heat issues over time.

The project is a fork of OpenPano adapted for thermographic images.

After many dead-ends I ended up achieving great results by first normalizing and enhancing the images using ImageMagick, then stitching them together using OpenPano.

  • Python for scripting everything
  • Image Magick for normalizing
  • Exiftools for reading meta-data
