Course description

no requirements

The course presents a review of current Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and provides a detailed analysis of the engineering, scientific and functional aspects of VR systems and the fundamentals of VR modelling and programming. The course also will introduce to the development and building of virtual environments and simulators and presents some force feedback devices and newer visualization and interaction interfaces. Will be acquired knowledge in the main application of VR and AR technologies in medicine and surgery, cultural heritage and games.

The learning outcomes will be the acquisition of knowledge in VR and AR technologies in terms of used devices, building of the virtual environment, modalities of interaction and modelling and design of an AR application.

classroom and laboratory lessons

The final exam consists in the discussion on the project developed by the student.
