New technologies correspond to new possibilities
With a total available space of 200m2 divided into 3 laboratories and distributed in different university structures, the infrastructure available to MiBTec represents a unique reality in the Italian university landscape. The Center has two interactive CAVEs (3x3x2.5m), VR Oculus Rift and HTC Vive viewers, a Cyberith Virtualizer, a driving simulator, an Optitrack device for motion capture, Arduino platforms, sensors and high-performance HP Omen and Dell Alienware workstations. Software development tools include the Unity3D graphics engine, supported by the MiddleVR plugin, and the C # programming language.These tools allow to create and enjoy simulated experiences characterized by high levels of immersion and visual fidelity, thus allowing to study human behavior in a natural way and in a wide range of situations.
