The Immersive Visualization Laboratory at the California Institute for Telecommunications and
Information Technology focuses on virtual reality (VR) software applications, which leverage its
unique features, including user tracking, 3D input devices, immersive displays, multi-user capability,
and high-end graphics hardware. In 2007, the StarCAVE was built by the Laboratory which is still
one of the most advanced virtual reality systems in the world. Since then, the NexCAVE VR system
was developed, which consists of an array of 3D TV displays instead of projectors. This presentation will unveil some of the more recent virtual reality software applications the Laboratory has been working on.
Jurgen P. Schulze is a Research Scientist at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CALIT2), and a Lecturer in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University of California San Diego. His research interests include scientific visualization in virtual environments, human computer interaction, real-time volume rendering, and graphics algorithms on programmable graphics hardware. He holds an M.S. degree from the University of Massachusetts and a Ph.D. from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. After his graduation he spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher in the Computer Science Department at Brown University.
