(ORDO NEWS) — Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot will guard Pompeii. A drone will fly over Pompeii and conduct a 3D scan of the museum’s territory.
Researchers from the University of Lund, Sweden, have recreated one of the most beautiful objects in Pompeii, the House of Epigrams, using VR technology.
The Spot robot will guard Pompeii. A Boston Dynamics robot will patrol the archaeological park. He will monitor the state of the monument and the progress of restoration work, ensure the safety of the museum staff and its visitors. One of his main tasks: to monitor the possibility of the collapse of ancient buildings.
A drone will fly over Pompeii to conduct a 3D scan of the museum’s 66 hectare area. Park director Gabriel Zuchtrigel says: “Technological advances in the world of AI robotics and autonomous systems have led to great solutions and innovations, but they still have not found application in archaeology.” So, it’s time to start.
The “House of Epigrams” in Pompeii can now be seen with your own eyes. Researchers from the University of Lund, Sweden have recreated one of the most beautiful mansions in Pompeii the House of Epigrams.
To recreate the house as it was in 79 AD. the scientists used Unity based virtual reality and eye tracking technology. Now you can walk through the ancient house and appreciate how skillfully the decorators and architects of those times worked.
Scientists recreate ancient aromas. An interdisciplinary group of researchers archaeologists, philologists, neuroscientists, geneticists has published a program for the restoration of ancient smells.
To do this, scientists propose to use the “archive of aromas”: dental plaque of fossil remains, traces of organic matter on ceramic vessels, descriptions of incense and cooking. According to scientists, it is necessary to restore aromas in order to represent the life of ancient eras.
