IDS-CE 672 VIRTUAL REALITY SYSTEMS: MODELING & CONTROL

This course provides the required theoretical and practical background to design and development of multimodal virtual reality (VR) systems.  Particularly, the main focus is on VR-based human-in-the-loop systems that enable users to interact and/or manipulate virtual objects in simulated environments. This course aims to cover basics of these systems through lectures, homework, lab assignments, a term project, and readings on current related topics. Through lab assignments, students acquire hands-on skills to create a multimodal virtual environment. Topics include multimodal virtual reality, current VR technology and devices, human-centered simulation: human perception and psychophysics, basic control and stability analysis of VR systems, and human factors in the design of VR displays. CE-672 students will be required to complete additional projects or independent review of research topics with approval of the instructor.
