Date: May 19th-26th, 2018 (appointment needed)
Location: 4th Floor, Mengminwei Building, Zijingang Campus, in Zhejiang University
Interactive Presentation Content
Ultra-high-definition Large-screen Visualization Analysis System
Global-scale atmospheric data visualization system: this system maps meteorological data of various types and structures according to the different visualization methods selected by the user, in an interactive 3D scene.
Urban big data integration analysis platform: This system collects urban data of 7 million people and integrates data knowledge from multiple fields. The urban big data integration analysis platform provides functions such as data query, data analysis and inference reproduction.
Sports VR Experience System
This system is created by bringing together the motion platform and the VR rendering system. Aside from immersive visual experience, it also features a immersive motion experience based on the user's natural movement, thereby creating a more realistic virtual environment.
Face Animation and Interactive Technology
Face tracking and animation technology can track three-dimensional facial feature points in real time from videos recorded by ordinary cameras and is used to drive facial expression of a virtual character. The acquired three-dimensional facial features can also be used for analysis of user's facial expressions.

3D Printing and Water Transfer Printing Technology
Computational water transfer printing technology solves the problem of accurate coloring of three-dimensional objects. It can achieve precise coloring on three-dimensional objects with point-to-point aiming. This coloring technology can counter the disadvantages of high cost, slow speed, and low accuracy of traditional 3D color printing equipment.
Mobile Reality Augmentation Platform
The platform can fuse virtual objects into real scenes through mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets. It can also reconstruct three-dimensional models of real objects/scenes online, and achieve rapid three-dimensional digitization of objects, occlusion between virtual and real objects as well as shadow formation, to ensure high-fidelity integration performance.
After wearing the VIVE device, users will be immersed in the stunning panoramic view of West Lake with realistic sound effects. Users can then use the wireless controller as a magic wand to draw shapes in the air. Water firework will be displayed above the distant lake to embellish the scene.
Virtual Reality Display of Sport Events
The goal of this device is to simulate the experience of watching a sports event on site through the use of real-time three-dimensional reconstruction and virtual viewpoint synthesis technology. It can be widely used in large sport tournaments.
