Motion Capture, Peripheral & Audio

Motion capture

Placed all around the projection system, our motion capture solution device measures all user movements, thus ensuring real-time interaction with a virtual environment. This interactivity is provided by an ART ® tracking system, based on a set of eight cameras. This device allows us to track the position and orientation of the observer’s head in the environment, delivering a coherent perception of the virtual environment.

In order to meet the most demanding motion capture needs, CRVM also has high frequency VICON ® cameras that can be combined with the ART ® system.

In addition to the ART ® tracking system, CRVM has virtual reality devices that interact with the virtual environment.

Other peripheral and audio devices

To complete professional virtual reality devices, CRVM develops original interactions based on general public products.

CRVM also develops its own input devices based on this research or expressed CAVE ™ user needs.

In collaboration with other Institute of Movement Sciences teams, CRVM has a static driving simulator to enrich the sensory feedback of a CAVE ™ driving simulation.

Finally, the facility is equipped with a spatial sound system in 7.1 configuration, to associate a sound dimension to visual immersion.
