VIRtual Team User Environment (VIRTUE): Final report

Project ID: IST-1999-10044
Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

The objectives of the project were:
- To develop the innovative technology necessary to produce a convincing impression of
presence in a semi-immersive teleconferencing system;
- To integrate and demonstrate a telepresence system incorporating such innovative
techniques;
- To investigate the human factors involved in maximising the effectiveness and realism of
telepresence, and to use them to drive the design of the system.

VIRTUE successfully completed research in algorithms, real-time and systems. This work has provided a sound base upon which hardware and software components could be integrated with the VIRTUE stations. A number of experiments in the human factors have also been successfully completed.
