•   3D Reconstruction for AR/VR,

•   User studies in VR/AR,

•   VR Medical Applications and Virtual Rehabilitation,

•   Immersive VR/AR applications in general.

In addition to basic research we focus on novel applications of VR/AR technology which are beneficial to society. In the past we developed innovative solutions for industrial high precision tracking, physical rehabilitation, safety of fire fighters, high school science education in VR, prosthetics, and many more. We have 15 years of experience in acquiring national and EU project funding. Please see our website for a list of current and past projects.
