Virtual Reality and Reality Reconstruction Lab
ERC 3rd level Code
Research Activities

The VR3Lab is a multidisciplinary research facility for the development and testing of innovative tools and methods in engineering and medicine. Its goal is to explore and apply cutting edge technologies in the following areas:
•    Virtual and Augmented Reality simulation & marketing
•    Augmented Reality solutions for Industry 4.0
•    Augmented Reality maintenance
•    Virtual training
•    Virtual tours and experiences for cultural heritage
•    Natural User Interfaces
•    Industrial advanced interfaces
•    CAD and PLM consulting
•    Composite materials modeling
•    CAD advanced surfacing and style
•    Reverse engineering and CAD reconstruction
•    Industrial ergonomics and human-centered design
•    Bioengineering simulations
•    Bioengineering devices design and prototyping

The lab is provided with the latest VR & AR technologies in other to test and apply the optimal solution to the specific problem: head mounted displays, led and laser projectors, a virtual theater, software tools and libraries. Moreover, 3D scanners and 360-pano cameras are available for object and ambient reconstruction, while a 3D printer and a mechatronic-lab allow for prototyping novel devices.
