ARTiFICe - Augmented Reality Framework for Distributed Collaboration
Lab project in the area of Virtual and Augmented Reality.
Keywords: Virtual Reality Framework, 3D Interaction Techniques, Collaboration, Mobile Augmented Reality, Mobile Interaction, Low-cost Tracking Devices.
About this Project
This project aims on developing a flexible and powerful VR/AR framework build around on an off the shelf game engine (Unity3D). It offers rapid prototyping to create distributed and collaborative virtual and augmented reality applications. Its flexible design allows the rapid integration of new hardware, software features as well as 3D interaction techniques. It can be used in fully immersive setups with 6DOF interaction devices and HMDs, semi-immersive enviroments with stereo projector walls, desktop setups as well as mobile environments. ARTiFiCe is currently used for our research and teaching purposes.
