With 14 EU partners. A programme of experimental work on presence bridging to neuroscience.
At University College London we are responsible for a number components of the PRESENCCIA project. In particular, we are involved with the creation of a distributed persistent mixed reality environment that includes the UCL immersive virtual reality system and ADA, which is physically located in Barcelona. The eventual aim to that a person in the UCL CAVE-like environment will be able to see and interact with people in ADA and with other virtual characters producing an online community. The goal is to develop and explore the possibilities of a persistent mixed reality space, which includes innovative interface systems such as Ada and the Cave, and is inhabited by remote people represented as avatars and autonomous virtual characters.
