The ViRVIG Research Group at UPC Future Arena space of the Barcelona Building Construmat (23-26 May 2017)
The ViRVIG group presents some virtual reality (VR) experiences to show the possibilities of the VR technology to go beyond the 2D plane projects, as well as the ViRVIG current research areas. The VR experiences allow visitors to explore BIM models, to visualize projects in the context of their location though the reconstruction of extremely detailed urban and rural environments, and to visualize collective people behavior in emergency situations that require building evacuation.

Inauguration of the last generation virtual reality room at CIMNE
The International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) has just inaugurated a new space for research at the UPC Campus Nord of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. A highlighted space of the new facilities is the potential of the new 3D room, designed by CIMNE researchers and the team of the Centre de Realitat Virtual de Barcelona (CRV) of the UPC. It is an important 3D visualization tool and it will serve as a testing laboratory by researchers and as a showroom exhibition of prototypes of engineering, bioengineering, interactive environments, etc The 3D room has a very high performance equipment, which features an array of 12 projectors to achieve more than 4K resolution, retractable large screen, calibration system, polarized glasses, 3D sound system, computer equipment for high-performance rendering and interaction works.
