Description (last modified by hdempsey@bbn.com)

One-sentence layman's description:

This demo shows preliminary work on a networked virtual reality system for education about alternative energy devices.

Who should see this demo?

Attendees interested in educational or networked virtual reality should see this demo.

Demo description paragraph(s):

[co-PI Terrence Chambers may update this]

We demonstrate an educational virtual reality environment that models a real alternative energy center. We seek to inspire and motivate the STEM workforce of tomorrow through exciting Virtual Reality approaches that teach renewable energy concepts and clearly show size, arrangement, and inter-operation of plant components. We are expanding the VR system to use high-performance networks to support bi-directional VR interaction between experts at a university or at the solar plant and high school students at a STEM magnet academy. Such technologies will overcome geographic barriers to accessing expert instructors and will support virtual field trips with live instructors.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch, monitor): Estimated 5 connections: two laptops with some VR device(s).

Total number of wired network connections (sum standard IP and VLAN connections): 2

Number of wired layer 2 VLANs (if any): Specify VLAN number, if known, approximate bandwidth, and whether tagged or untagged.

Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant):

Number of static addresses needed (if any):

Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI): 1 standard, DVI Specify resolution only if your software has resolution restrictions.

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40"): 1

Special requests: Our colleague Raju Gottumukkala may have a separate demo or poster. If so, we would like to be nearby. I will double-check with him.

Participants:

Christoph Borst and Terrence Chambers (from University of Louisiana at Lafayette?)
