AR / VR Unit


Our unit focuses on research and development in the areas of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR).  Using a HMD “Head Mounted Display”, VR creates an environment via software that immerses the user in a virtual world which suspends belief.  AR is similar but uses holograms which are overlaid on the user’s real environment and enhances or adds to what they can see via data displays or 3D models. This relatively new technology has huge potential for research in a wide range of fields including Industry 4.0, Health, AgriTech, Fintech, Transport, Telecoms, Media and Entertainment.
