ASP Project Augmented, Virtual & Mixed Reality (AVMR) by SEI Pioneer

ASP Project Augmented, Virtual & Mixed Reality (AVMR) by SEI Pioneer

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.
 
The AVMR project aims to explore the challenge of developing applications for new learning methods and for addressing a mass market usage, both on a B2B or B2C level. Classrooms are not the only place people can learn, and remote learning & remote visualization is becoming more and more effective. 360° cameras are quite accessible and affordable these days as also AR kits. Everything from cooking recipes to dog training guides can be addressed through this technology and the immersion and sense of presence added by the new technology makes them more effective than ever before; yet it can also be used to enhance collaborative tasks in several industries, as well as encouraging different ways of learning or stimulating equal gender participation in STEM activity up to stimulate socializing and inclusive activities for people with special needs. 
 
The project will also involve Prof. Monica Bordegoni, from Politecnico di Milano.
