On October 1 and 2, 2019, the VR@POLITO of Politecnico di Torino and Fondazione LINKS, with the support of the the Italian Air Force, will participate to the TOXIC TRIP 2019, an event promoted by NATO to potentiate the interoperability of national air forces in a transnational perspective. At the event, a virtual reality-based tool supporting the training of personnel involved in Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) defense procedures will be showcased.
The VR@POLITO will be present at the Politecnico di Torino stand of the 2019 Maker Faire in Rome (October 18-20), showcasing demonstrators and presentations on the activities in the fields of industrial and service robotics.
The VR@POLITO will be involved in the 2019/2020 project of the Alta Scuola Politecnica (ASP) named Augmented, Virtual & Mixed Reality (AVMR) by SEI Pioneer. Prof. Fabrizio Lamberti will act as main supervisor. SEI Pioneer is a one-year program in partnership with ASP that aims to create the next generation of deep tech entrepreneurs and innovators in Italy. According to the proposal, Augmented, Virtual & Mixed Reality is mostly associated with entertainment industry. After all, a VR headset seems on the surface to be essentially a very high-tech video game. The truth is, that this technology goes far beyond that: not everyone plays video games, but everyone loves to learn and interact in a different way. Educational Technology, in particular, is going through several changes in the last years, including also the mass-marketization of educative and recreational games; Schools and universities are changing their traditional teaching methods and it will completely revolutionize the way teachers teach and students learn together, while also industries and corporates are adapting their learning methods.
