3D visualisation is becoming increasingly widespread in as diverse areas as industrial design, architecture,
city planning, medicine, moving images as well as the arts. The ability to interact in new ways with 3D
models offers new possibilities for the professionals in these areas.
In a unique combination, the following 3D visualisation technologies are available in CAVI
- a panorama
- a holobench
- a virtuel studio
In addition interaction technologies like motion capture equipment is available.
The CfPC research themes addressed in the area of CAVI falls into two categories
- 3D visualisation and interaction technologies as pervasive computer technology itself
- 3D visualisation and interaction technologies as for prototyping and visualising the future of pervasive
At CAVI 3D visualisation and interaction technologies are available which today is not general accessible
for Danish Industry and the Danish society. In CAVI it is possible to experiment with how technologies
like the panorama and the holobench in the future can be used in the school, at the museum, by the firm
of architects etc. Likewise, CAVI will explore the potential for the mix of digital and real objects and
people by using virtual set technology. In the domain of interaction technologies CAVI is addressing new
forms of interaction technologies based on ultra sound, magnetic systems and infrared technology which
make it possible for people in a discreet way can interact with 3D models.
The panorama and the holobench will also be used for prototyping new pervasive technologies , for
instance by visualising pervasive technologies gadgets on the holobench. The virtuel studie will be used
for visualising used scenarios illustrating how people can work and live in the our pervasive computing
environment of the future.
The CfPC projects in CAVI are:
- Visualization of the Cadiovascular System
- Interfaces for 3D applications
- Video prototyping
- Digital Theatre – Hyperopticon
The research responsible for the area is associate professor Kim Halskov and the CfPC partner is University
