We present a simulator for militar fluvial boats, in which we concentrate in the task of shooting. Shooting from a boat is particularly challenging, due to rapid movements, river conditions, and special considerations that should be taken into account for a shooters security. We present a hardware platform that simulates boat movements under different(More)
Recent advances in web development, including the introduction of HTML5, have opened a door for visualization researchers and developers to quickly access larger audiences worldwide. Open source libraries for the creation of interactive visualizations are becoming more specialized but also modular, which makes them easy to incorporate in domain-specific(More)
Virtual shooting training has become very attractive because of possible cost reductions and precise evaluation. This article describes the development of a shooting simulator to train soldiers in fluvial combat. This simulator combines the motion of a mechanical platform with virtual imagery and sound to produce an immersive scenario for training purposes.(More)
—In this paper we propose a visual estimation algorithm to aid the guidance system of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Specifically, we are considering a glider UAV trying to reach a target zone. Given that the UAV is falling fast, the scale of the images captured by the on-board camera grows. The vehicle dynamics and the control algorithm cause fast(More)
This paper presents a Colombian national ST EM program, promoted by a networ k of 10 Colombian universities, coordinated by University of the Andes in Bogotá, Colombia and their engineering and education schools, oriented towards the professional development of science and technology teachers from primary and secondary schools.
