# Introductory Trilogy of ECE516 Labs (4 lab weeks total)

Here are the first four weeks of lab; grading takes place each week (equal weight), so the grading for Lab 2 is twice the weight (2a + 2b), i.e. 2a and 2b are each worth equal weight to 1 and 3:
• 1. The one-pixel display: once you understand this simple concept, you'll understand modern AR (Augmented Reality), and imaging, vision, etc., in a very fundamental way;
• 2a. The one-pixel camera: once you understand this, you'll understand imaging in general, and its most fundamental question: "What is a pixel and what does it represent, i.e., as a quantity, specifically what does the pixel quantity represent?
• 2b. Quantifying the 1-pixel camera: Quantimetric/Quantigraphic sensing....
Marking:
• Collect quantimetric data from your 1-pixel camera: obtain ordered pairs (f,g).
• Plot g as a function of f.
• Plot f as a function of q.
• Determine the mathematical relationship between f and q, based on the data for your camera.
• Repeat the above for the two examples shown in class. 1 mark for repeating with the photoresistor data gathered in Wednesday's lecture (link) and 1 mark for repeating with the data gathered from the Blue Sky solar cell (link) gathered in Thursday's lecture.
Each of the 5 results above is worth 2/10 marks for a total of 10/10. See also the Photocell Experiment.
• 3. Phenomenological Augmented Reality: linking the above two labs, we have the 1-pixel camera connected to the 1-pixel display, to give rise to the simplest possible example of 3D AR, in which there is an overlay of some virtual information in perfect and exact alignment with some form of physical reality.
