Microsoft Research and the Hasso Platner Institute:
Gravity Space is a new approach to tracking people and objects indoors. Unlike traditional solutions based on cameras, Gravity Space Reconstructs scene data from a pressure-sensing floor. While the floor is limited to sensing objects in direct contact with the ground, Gravity Space Reconstructs contents above the ground by first Identifying objects based on their texture and then applying inverse kinematics.
