Re:creation VR and AR Laboratory

Synesthesia in Virtual Reality

Synesthesia in Virtual Reality

  • Synesthesia is the act of experiencing one sense modality as another, e.g., a person may vividly experience flashes of colors when listening to a series of sounds.
  • Recent technological advances in the Virtual Reality field allow to induce such experiences due to the effect of presence achieved in the virtual environment.
  • This has numerous medical and artistic applications.
  • So far our focus has been localization and visual interpretation of sound in Virtual Reality.

Synesthesia: publications

  • A. Tepljakov, S. Astapov, E. Petlenkov, K. Vassiljeva, and D. Draheim, “Sound Localization and Processing for Inducing Synesthetic Experiences in Virtual Reality,” in Proc. 15th Biennial Baltic Electronics Conference, 2016, Laulasmaa, Estonia, pp. 159–162.
  • A. Köse, A. Tepljakov, and S. Astapov, “Real-time Localization and Visualization of a Sound Source for Virtual Reality Applications,” in Proc. of the 25th International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks, 2017, Split, Croatia, pp. 1-6.

Ahmet Köse received the Best Student Paper Award from the SoftCOM 2017 conference committee for the second paper.

Control Objects in Virtual Reality

Control Objects in Virtual Reality

  • The project is dedicated to creating virtual control objects for real-time control experiments.
  • We model laboratory objects, because this allows us to obtain highly accurate mathematical models of these systems for making classroom instruction much more efficient.
  • One specific goal is to mathematically model and implement physically accurate interactions between the user and the control objects (e.g., using motion controllers).
  • Future goals include modeling real-life industrial objects for implementing specialized virtual training.
