The IVIDIA Lab was originally established in 2014 under the direction of Dr. Ju Shen in the department of Computer Science. The mission of IVIDIA Lab seeks to utilize state-of-the-art technologies in vision, machine learning, and interactive media, to foster the development of virtual reality (VR) applications in various forms of human-computer interactions. In particular, they are exploring the potential educational and therapeutic values of VR technologies to facilitate the learning and rehabilitation procedures. In addition to research, the IVIDIA lab is also serving undergraduate and graduate students who take independent study courses on topics of virtual and augmented reality to engage with various sensors, headsets, and interactive controllers for VR content creation. 

Ongoing research projects include:

  • Realtime motion tracking and retargeting for behavior rehabilitation 
  • Mobile 3D ranging with monocular video stream to reconstruct high quality 3D models
  • Unobtrusive behavior analytics for novel activity synthesis
  • Tele-immersive communication system by transforming every smartphone and tablet into an interactive VR device
