We are starting to develop our Advanced Software Development Lab (room 3.38-2), equipped with computer systems and spatial I/O devices (HTC Vive glasses for Virtual Reality, leap motion, 3D mouse SpaceNavigator, 3D projector, interconnected 3D monitors) that enable to deal with complex software models in a 3D space, possibly employing virtual and augmented reality.

Main topics of our research are:

Multidimensional software modeling

Visualizing software for understanding and analysis

Collaborative software development in 3D UML

Members of the Lab

Ivan Polasek

Coordinator, multidimensional modeling and visualization
