CCTA researchers are working on IADT CAVE project

IADT has received R&D infrastructure funding of €560k from Enterprise Ireland to develop an immersive virtual reality system.The system, CAVE (Automatic Virtual Environment), will immerse users in ambionic sounds and high-end 3D graphic environments projected on four walls. The CAVE will also use a wireless motion tracking system to support research in:

* cyber-psychology and cognitive studies
* real-time visualisation and interaction
* high-end interactive graphics

Dr Grainne Kirwan and colleagues in CCTA are leading the research in cyber-psychology and cognitive studies. For further information see http://www.iadt.ie/en/InformationAbout/NewsEvents/Title,1374,en.html
