3D-stereoskopische VR-Rückprojektionsumgebung (Stadtraum-Simulationslabor)
Ao.Univ.Prof. Dr. Andreas Voigt; Ao.Univ.Prof. Dr. Bob Martens
Three multi-touch monitors allow simultaneous visualization of the effects of different planning scenarios or developments over various time horizons, and/or simultaneous viewing of pictorial, numeric and spatial information. A rear-projection wall allows simultaneous viewing of spatial visualizations in 2D and 3D for up to 15 people. The lab also has a virtual reality connection for stereoscopic presentation of the planning datasets. As well as 2D and 3D projectors, it is also equipped with an HTC VIVE multimedia headset that allows users to interact in the virtual reality space. The associated software has been specially adapted for planning visualizations and is subject to continuous further development. Naturally, the SimLab is also equipped with all the necessary software to produce CAD and GIS-based urban models and visualize the latter in virtual interactive environments as a planning support tool.
The ongoing projects in which the simlab is involved (the doctoral college „Urban Energy and Mobility System“, URBEM, „Virtual Airport City“, „Blackout“ and „SmartAIRea“, inter alia) are all characterized by interdisciplinary collaboration – both across faculties at TU Wien as well as with project partners from other research institutions, business and the public sector.
