Course objectives
Students will be introduced to the possibilities of augmented and virtual reality applications. An integral part of the lectures and excersises will be modeling in 3D, WRML, X3D. During the exercises, students will be introduced to modeling applications: Unity3D, Oculus, VTK, POV-Ray, Webots, V-Rep, Virtual Medical Simulators. VR presented on the web - Unity3D, WebVR, Cortona Viewer. Students will also be able to work on advanced virtual reality, HW and SW tools.
Learning outcomes
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:
explain the concepts of augmented and virtual reality;
describe and explain the structure of wrml and x3d;
describe modeling applications: Unity3D, Oculus, VTK, POV-Ray, Webots, V-Rep, Virtual Medical Simulators;
describe the possibilities of interaction in the virtual reality, haptics;
describe the possibilities of using VR in industry and other sectors.
