Acquisition, management and visualization of 3D data

Latest News

The first test session for the MEDIA project is about to end.

As explained in this interview for TGR – Valle d’Aosta, the project aims to foster cultural activities enhancing the visitor’s experience through the usage of the most innovative digital technologies. Computer vision, electroencephalography, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality are used to strenghten the visitor’s engagement, which is analyzed using affective computing methodologies.

It is still possible to participate in the experiment! Book your test session at Museo dell’Artigianato Valdostano (MAV) by calling 0165 1835120. We are waiting for you!

The 3DLab Research Group

We focus on human-computer interaction applications and on visualisation, acquisition and management of 3D data.

Human body interaction, development of innovative product design methodologies, novel solutions for diagnostics and surgery planning and systems, emotional design, 3D sensors, augmented and virtual reality, 3D modelling and face analysis using machine learning techniques all belongs to our area of expertise.

We leverage on this knowledge to develop medical, security and safety, marketing software applications.
