Research

Key research areas 

The research group focuses on collaboration driven research in Augmented and Virtual Reality. We aim at:

  • pushing the boundaries of the enabling technologies
  • contributing to the understanding of how to optimally apply the technologies in terms of sensing, perception, and usability

Focus

The research group address the challenges of balancing limited computing resources with the need for obtaining convincing and usable Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences, while taking into account, that the systems need to operate in real-time.

The results are applicable to designing perceptually optimal Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences, and interaction in such experiences.

The research also involves modeling and estimating the interaction between light and surfaces, applicable to surface inspection.

Key projects 

The LER project

The LER project developed techniques for submilimeter 3D scanning of wind turbine blades and estimation of surface roughness due to erosion.

The DARWIN project

The DARWIN project develops techniques for estimating illumination and surface reflectance for indoor and outdoor applications.

Robot surgery training

In collaboration with Aalborg University Hospital and MIUC, we developed virtual-reality and augmented-reality tools for training in robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery

VR and AR for museum

In collaboration with Vesthimmerlands Museum we are developing virtual reality and indirect-augmented-reality experiences for intangible cultural heritage.
