Laboratory for Advanced User Interfaces and Virtual Reality

The Laboratory for Advanced User Interfaces and Virtual Reality provides a range of specialized equipment for:

  • 3D graphics
  • haptic research
  • user interface

There are currently four main research projects utilizing the facilities in this laboratory:

  • Exploring software tools that enable the interactive visualization of the results of large-scale scientific and engineering computations while the computations are running. This allows researchers to make more efficient use of high performance computers.
  • Investigating interactive 3D user interfaces for medical visualization applications with the aim of making it easier to locate tumours.
  • Using haptics as an alternative interface for controlling electronic devices, such as radios or cell phones, within automobiles.
  • Investigating techniques for the automatic construction of user interfaces for mobile applications.
