Knowing where to go in virtual worlds!
Erlangen/Nuremberg, March 18, 2015: Virtual reality (VR) makes it possible to immerse oneself in new and unfamiliar computer worlds. This technology features strengths that industrial companies, architects and city planners are finding increasingly important for their planning and training processes. To support such applications, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS are now offering high-performance positioning technology that can be integrated into these systems. Precision positioning allows multiple VR users unrestricted mobility in both indoor and outdoor environments.
