Vector driven 2.5D printing with non-photorealistic rendering (2016)
Journal Article
O'Dowd, P., Parraman, C., & Harding, M. (2016). Vector driven 2.5D printing with non-photorealistic rendering. https://doi.org/10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2016.20.COLOR-343

This paper documents the development of a low-cost 2.5D printing machine. The machine is being developed specifically to consistently print combined colour and texture on to 2D surfaces. The proposal is not so much to produce a painting machine in em... Read More about Vector driven 2.5D printing with non-photorealistic rendering.

The distributed co-evolution of an on-board simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours (2014)
Journal Article
Winfield, A. F. T., O'Dowd, P. J., O'Dowd, P., Studley, M., & Winfield, A. F. (2014). The distributed co-evolution of an on-board simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours. Evolutionary Intelligence, 7(2), 95-106. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12065-014-0112-8

We investigate the reality gap, specifically the environmental correspondence of an on-board simulator. We describe a novel distributed co-evolutionary approach to improve the transference of controllers that co-evolve with an on-board simulator. A n...
