Hardware Systems Cluster|
A group of faculty and technical professionals designing
and building working prototypes of experimental hardware
systems to solve scientifically significant problems.
(Bishop, Brumback, Eyles, Fuchs, Keller, Lastra, Nyland,
Poulton, Singh, Taylor, Thomas, Towles, Vicci, Welch)
High-Performance Graphics Architectures Group|
Long-term project developing computer architectures for 3D
graphics that offer dramatically higher performance than
other currently available systems, with wide flexibility for a
broad range of applications that require significant graphics
power, including medical visualization, molecular modeling,
and architectural design. Current and recent projects
include: Pixel-Planes, PixelFlow, Image-Based Rendering, etc.
(Bishop, England, Eyles, Fuchs, Keller, Lastra, Molnar,
Poulton, Thomas, Vicci, et al.)
Research into building accurate, long-range head-tracking
systems for head-mounted displays that work accurately and
efficiently in real time. Current projects include:
tracking for augmented reality research, wide-area tracking.
