Development of an electromechanical System for 3D Display Prototype

3D movies and videogames enjoy a rapidly increasing popularity. However, current display technology, especially for home theatres, still requires the viewers to wear assistive devices such as shutter glasses. We are developing 3D display technology that does not require such assistive devices. This technology uses micro-electromechanical elements and synchronized image content display.

The aim of this project is the development the electromechanical system for a simple 3D display prototype in this technology. While the prototype will have a lower resolution compared to the intended display, it will provide full 3D experience and demonstrate the concept of our new technology. Future work will build on the experience gained from this prototype and will lead to displays that provide improved 3D experience.

The student will design mechanical components including their actuation mechanism. The student will then assemble and instrument the mechanical system. The student will integrate an image content delivery system and will synchronize it with the mechanical system. Finally, the student will evaluate the prototype and provide recommendations for improvements and future work.
