Remote cross debugging: Windows to Raspberry-Pi

In the past few days I’ve spent quite a lot of time on my new shining Raspberry-Pi. It’s an amazing little devil, worth every Euro I spent! Since I’ve planned to deploy a software component of my augmented reality system on this board, I needed to figure out how to remotely debug it in order to troubleshoot any issue I would run into. It took me some time, but thanks to the friends on Raspberry Pi Forum and to this awesome tutorial I finally made it: I can deploy my software to the raspberry-pi from Eclipse CDT and debug from my comfortable Windows 7 machine....

Kinect-based medical images exploration

The following is a short video clip about the project I’ve been involved in for the last months at ICAR-CNR. We’ve been using OpenNI+Nite+OpenCV to manipulate medical images using Microsoft Kinect. Enjoy the clip and let me know what you think 😉

Eh già! A quanto pare è un problema noto di Visual Studio 2008 su Windows 7!

MITO: software open source per medical imaging|MITO: open source medical imaging software

My internship at the ICAR institute (CNR) gave me the opportunity to work on some interesting projects, one of them being a software named MITO (Medical Imaging TOolkit). MITO, as stated by the project website, is an opensource software architecture for advanced Medical Imaging. I’m always proud of the projects I work on, even more if those projects are contributing to the opensource cause and managed by some public funded research institute!...

VC++ 2008 e CUDA (NVIDIA)|VC++ 2008 and CUDA (NVIDIA)

Let me guess: you just wrote your new, shining CUDA application to unleash all the horsepower of your GPU and you are getting some compilation errors in Visual Studio. Some really weird errors. Something like: 1>CUDA_myfile.cu_generated.c 1>C:\Programmi\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\INCLUDE\vadefs.h(52) : error C2059: syntax error : ‘string’ 1>C:\Programmi\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\INCLUDE\vadefs.h(61) : error C2059: syntax error : ‘string’ 1>c:\cuda\include\vector_types.h(426) : error C2059: syntax error : ‘type’ 1>c:\cuda\include\vector_types.h(427) : error C2059: syntax error : ‘type’...
