A researcher explores an immersive stereoscopic virtual reconstruction of the Camposanto Monumentale di Pisa, whose famous frescos were nearly totally destroyed by fire during bombing during WWII. Fortunately, original black and white photographs of the site from before the war allow cultural heritage sites such as this to be artificially
Luigi Borelli is wearing the prototype of a body extender. The BodyExtender Project belongs to the research field of the exoskeleton system which enhances human physical performance. The applications of this system concern mainly logistics (heavy load movimentation which needs high dexterity) in non structured environment.
PhD student Oscar Sandoval-Gonzalez testing new body-based gesture recognition technology. Retroreflective markers attached to his limbs are mapped in virtual space in real-time with a VICON motion-tracking system, and the movements of the kinematical structure of his
Researcher Haakon Faste amidst a cloud of "design synthesis." His work deals with virtual experience design for cultural heritage networks and
Mechanical engineers Nicola Lucchesi (left) and Federico Tarri (right) make adjustments to the PERCRO
Federico Tarri is testing a novel haptic interface designed by PERCRO that allows users to identify different kinds of fabric in a virtual environment. The modeling of virtual textile presents difficult challenges for mechanical engineers and in the future will allow users to touch a wide variety of simulated deformable objects (such as virtual skin, fur, sand).
Paolo Tripicchio with a GRAB robotic interface delopped by PERCRO for telerobotic operations and collaborative work environment for virtual tasks such as the assembly of machine parts by geographically separated operators.
