The George Eastman Museum Digitization process improvement project developed hardware and software to partially automate an artifact digitization process for the Eastman Museum.
As there is a massive quantity of artifacts to be archived, an automated process will eliminate the time-intensive work required to digitize individual artifacts. The device should be operable by one stationary worker and should automate the operation of locating the artifact under the camera for the operator. A previous prototype was developed that required the operator to locate the artifact under the camera as well as the color test strip to be located near each artifact.
The goals of this project are to improve the automation of the artifact location and color test strip location, ensure the operator can remain stationary, and to deliver a functional prototype and supporting documentation. The resulting design and prototype need to utilize as much of the existing design as possible to reduce the cost to the stakeholders, as well as maintain the quality of all artifacts that are digitized.
COVID-19 Update: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team had to drastically alter the way we worked on the project and had to adjust our goals accordingly. Since we were in the middle of the subsystem testing phase, we did not complete a full prototype. Rather, we focused on putting together documentation for a future team to pick up where we left off. We hope they will benefit from our design and deliver a satisfactory product to the client.

Our Google Drive Backups directory includes periodic backups of our shared working directory.
The Edge Directory linked here contains ALL of our files and documents, including working copies and snapshot duplicate copies made in preparation for each phase review. While most files are either linked on an Edge page or a screenshot of a file is included in an Edge page, not every file on the Edge directory may be linked individually on a corresponding Edge page. Some files, such as 3D models, simulations, code files, Movie Maker files, absurdly large image files (~gig in size) and other binary files, cannot easily be represented on an Edge page. If a file cannot be explicitly found on an Edge webpage, it would mostly like be found either in this directory or the Google Drive Backup directory.
