Please also inform the registration desk.

  • Fraunhofer: https://www.iao.fraunhofer.de/lang-de/images/anfahrt/how_to_find_us_iao.pdf
    Fraunhofer IAO will also show three labs: The Visual Technologies lab, highlighting collaborative VR and Interactive Surfaces such as the 2D/3D projection table and the large-scale FusionWall tiled display; The Immersive Engineering Lab, a VR projection environment integrating a 5,5 m wide Powerwall with a 4-sided CAVE; The0 Driving Research Lab featuring a full size immersive driving simulator. The High Performance Computing Center of Stuttgart University will open its visualization Lab, highlighting leading-edge VR and visualization research in its 5-sided CAVE and tiled display wall.

  • Max Planck Institutes: http://www.kyb.tuebingen.mpg.de/institute/address/find.html
    At Max Planck participants can tour through the VR labsMPI for Intelligent Systems. The Cyberneum is a state-of-the-art Virtual Reality (VR) research facility, equipped with several sophisticated VR systems providing unique opportunities to study human perception and human-machine interaction. This includes two novel, in-house designed simulators – the CyberMotion Simulator and the Cable Robot Simulator. The MPI for Intelligent Systems houses a 4D full-body scanner. With this scanner a precise 3D avatar, the virtual equivalent of a person, can be reproduced as well as fully record the body and its movements in space and time in high-definition
