Virtual Prototyping & Augmented Reality Lab

The VIPAR Lab is located at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Politecnico di Milano, at the PPG building.
In this lab, innovative technologies for the development of AR/VR applications to use for the product development are made available to students and demonstrated to visitors. We use advanced systems for the development of 3D digital models, and we also develop applications based on virtual prototypes for the functional and ergonomic simulation of products.
The available technologies include devices for stereo-vision in virtual environments, which are used to represent both immersive and augmented environments. In particular, in this lab there is an area devoted to the immersive interaction and provided with devices to be worn by users. These devices, such as sensorised gloves and Head Mounted Displays, allow the development of applications with user-friendly interfaces. Finally, the lab has been equipped with tools for the acquisition and the analysis of human movements.
The equipments have been used in several European and national research projects, as well as in industrial projects. Furthermore, these resources and equipments are used by the students of Laurea Magistrale and by PhD students, to carry out researches related to the topics of their thesis or of their research.
