AIDAA: Symposium “Human Centred Design for passenger’s enhanced comfort in Aircraft cabin”

On 9-12 September in Rome, it will take place the symposium on “Human Centred Design for passenger’s enhanced comfort and wellbeing in Aircraft cabin” during the XXV International Congress of the AIDAA (Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics).

The symposium covers the following topics:

  • Noise and Vibration for cabin interiors;
  • Innovative non-structural materials for cabin items;
  • Human-Centered Design Approach for interior design;
  • Virtual Reality for human in the loop simulation of next-generation interiors;
  • Ergonomics studies for cabin interiors.

The Symposium is inspired to the research and activities done in the framework of the JTI Clean Sky 2 CASTLE (CAbin Systems design Toward passenger welLbEing) project, which aims at designing new-gen passenger cabin aircraft interiors for both Business Jet (flying office) and Regional aircraft with a Human-Centered Design approach.

Workshop on Semantic 3D Content (Eurographics-EuroVR)

EuroVR will contribute to the conference Eurographics (Genova, 6-10 May 2019) with a workshop on Semantic 3D content (6 May 2019).

The workshop attempts to foster and support the increasing development, use, and utility of semantic 3D technologies for researchers, application developers, domain experts as well as for end users. This includes semantic creation of interactive 3D content, robust and versatile semantic 3D content representation and delivery standards as well as semantic presentation and interaction techniques enabling development of user-friendly 3D/VR/AR applications.

The goal of the workshop is to share innovative and creative ideas that enable development of semantic 3D applications for a wide range of 3D environments, including the web, mobile as well as virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR) setups.

Topics

  • Ontologies for 3D and animation annotation, representation and retrieval
  • Semantic metadata for 3D and animation description
  • Ontologies based on 3D formats
  • Semantic 3D formats, including semantic X3D
  • Domain-specific ontologies for 3D description and representation
  • Semantic modeling and assembly of 3D content
  • Semantic methods and tools for on-demand, adaptive and contextual 3D visualization and generation
  • Semantic and contextual 3D/VR/AR web services
  • Semantic queries to 3D scenes and 3D content repositories
  • Semantics for immersive analytics in 3D
  • Semantic representation and modeling of 3D animations and interactions
  • Ontologies for multimodal interaction in VR/AR
  • Semantic representation and modeling of 3D content behavior
  • Explorable VR/AR applications and queryable behavior-rich VR/AR applications
  • Semantic 3D/VR/AR web applications
  • Semantic 3D graph annotations
  • Novel interactive semantic 3D applications in all areas and sectors, e.g., entertainment, education, training, cultural heritage, medicine, military, smart-manufacturing / industry 4.0, information visualization, scientific visualization, geo-visualization, building information modeling (BIM), and architecture.

Meeting the network: Haption

We want to inaugurate the new category “Meeting the network” with one of the founding member of EuroVR Association: Haption.

Haption is a company which designs, manufactures and sells hardware and software solutions based on force-feedback. Founded in 2001, the company partners with the most advanced leaders to provide professional level force-feedback solutions for medical, robotic, nuclear and industrial applications. Haption has a lot of interest in Virtual Reality where their haptic device brings the sense of contact inside Virtual Environments, a thing no other technology can claim to bring.

Jerome Perret, the CEO, plays a key role in the Association because he is EuroVR Vice President for  EU issues and Collaboration. Jerome is an entrepreneur with a strong technical background in robotics and computer engineering and his major interest is manual interaction with virtual environments, especially with force-feedback.

 

MEETING THE NETWORK

Meeting the network is a new category to get to know the Association and its network. Once a month we will publish news about our members.
If you are a member and you want to participate in this initiative, please write an email to communication@eurovr-association.org.

From VR to XR Expo 2019 – 3,4 July 2019

It is time again: on 3-4. July 2019, the XR Expo takes place in Stuttgart (Germany).  The focus of the event is on professional applications in industry, architecture, trading, medicine and crafting in virtual, augmented and mixed reality.

For the 2019 edition, VR expo has changed its name in XR Expo to put the focus on mixed reality technologies. XR Expo aims to be the community and meeting point for industry users, technology providers, content service providers, and researchers:

” There are now a number of fairs dealing with VR and ar, but does not offer this quality and abundance of solutions that can be used practically in companies.”
Christoph Runde, VDC CEO and XR Expo Co-Organizer
