Virtual Reality

We are developing a tool for viewing point-clouds and vector data in Virtual Reality. We have chosen to use the HTC-Vive and Unity for our development. Here is the plan for the development:

Our goal is to be finished in the autumn 2019. The blue dots is a priority where 1 is the highest priority and 4 the lowest.

The status of the development was updated on 2 October 2018 with the following colours:

  • Green = Development is finished
  • Orange = Under development
  • Red = Planned, but development not started

Download and try

We plan to release a beta version of the application in end of 2018 or in the beginning of 2019. If you want a notification when we release the first beta, please send an e-mail to: vr@rslab.se.

Examples

Here is a short video from a Ljungbergseminar where Henrik tries out the HTC Vive (Virtual Reality). We have converted a point cloud created from drone images to the virtual reality environment. On the screen in the background you can see what Henrik sees in the headset. In the headset, you see it all in 3D as well.
