Virtual Reality (VR) technologies give to researchers the opportunity to conduct experiments in life-like virtual scenarios, in a safe, controlled, measurable and repeatable way. Additionally, VR can be used simultaneously with other equipment from the Human Neuroscience Platform (such as EEG and fMRI).
The VR Facility team makes knowledge and expertise in the VR field accessible to all users at Campus Biotech and beyond. The VR facility provides support for the development of 3D (mainly focus on VR) content and scenarios, in collaboration with the users (mainly from academia research). A continuously growing library of developed software and technical set-ups is available, allowing faster developments of new experiments as well as on-need demos.
Co-development with research laboratories is also possible for promising and innovative projects which developments could benefit to the entire community.
MEET THE TEAM
Scientific supervision of the VR facility is performed by Prof. Daphné Bavelier (UNIGE), Prof. Alexander Mathis (EPFL) and Prof. Silvestro Micera (EPFL).
Margaux Dubessy is the manager of the VR facility. Antoine Provost, Mael Lacour and Nathan Attia are VR engineers.
