New Project – MiCLUES
Mon, 10 Mar 2014 16:52:29 +0000
We recently started a project called MiCLUES to develop dynamic smartphone-based visitor guidance algorithms and software for the Royal College of Music Museum of Instruments. The aim is to enable visitors to make better use of the combined physical and digital collections and to chart both curated and personalised paths through the museum. The project [...]Read more...

We recently started a new project in the area of big music data. Digital Music Lab – Analysing Big Music Data is an AHRC project funded under the Big Data call of the Digital Transformations in the Arts and Humanities Theme. Our goal is to develop research methods and software infrastructure for exploring and analysing [...]Read more...
Digital Excursion: Seeing the World in Three Dimensions
Publication date: Jan 26, 2011 12:38:29 PM
Mar 14, 2011 5:30:00 PM
End: Mar 14, 2011 7:00:00 PM
Location: UCL, the CAVE
The project to be demonstrated is co-partnered with Lancaster University Department of Psychology and the National Centre for Computer Animation and focuses on aspects of social interaction with virtual characters. Time permitting, other projects may be demonstrated as well. Concurrently in the foyer, there will be a demonstration of large scale haptic (touch) interfaces and discussion of current and future research directions.
The Immersive VR Lab is a facility for research spanning a broad range of academic disciplines. Current and recent collaborations include projects with partners in engineering, architecture, drama, social psychology and neuroscience. All of these projects share the research goal of understanding how to make virtual reality effective; to this end researchers at the facility perform experiments with participants, using a range of media from desktop setups to immersive VR in a CAVE-like display system, incorporating various modes of interaction. The research aims to find out what makes a difference to our sense of presence in a virtual environment, and our sense of co-presence with other people.
Anthony Steed is a Professor and head of the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics group at the UCL Department of Computer Science. His research area is real-time interactive virtual environments, with particular interest in mixed-reality systems, large-scale models and collaboration between immersive facilities.
Swapp is a Research Fellow working in the Virtual
Environments and Computer Graphics group, and is also manager of
Immersive VR Lab. His principle research areas are in motion
capture, character animation and multimodal perceptual issues that
affect experiences and interactions within virtual environments.
