Event description

Description

AVRL has some exciting news!

We are officially expanding our group across Perth’s university campuses, and are hosting our next event at Edith Cowan University (Motion Capture Studio: Building 10, Level 2, Room 231). Our two speakers will demonstrate some of the innovative AR and VR projects taking place at ECU.

Trailblazer multimodal Augmented Reality

Trailblazer Augmented Reality (AR) authoring platform allows you to search for, undertake and develop augmented reality quests on your mobile device – no programming skills required! Join Martin Masek to hear about the creation of guided and learner-driven learning experiences, and his insights from various cultural heritage and education experiences developed with this AR platform.

Inside ECU’s MoCap Studio

Luke Hopper will speak about using the state-of-the-art ECU motion capture studio in the disciplines of biomechanics and animation. In particular, Luke will discuss his work which combines biomechanical and animation processes with the aims of producing highly accurate visualisation of human movement for use in virtual simulations.

We hope you’ll come along for the usual chance to catch up with the latest in AR & VR in Perth, and of course, demos will be available for everyone to try!

Anyone interested in AR & VR is welcome and attendance is free.

Martin Masek is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Science and Co-Leader of the Centre for Transformational Games. He completed his PhD from the University of Western Australia in 2004, and currently teaches in Games and Simulation Development and Software Engineering. Martin is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the International Game Developers Association (IGDA), and has research interests in computer vision and image processing; applications for games technology, and software and gaming for health (including remote mobile device diagnosis).

Luke Hopper completed a PhD specialising in the biomechanics of dance and injury prevention at the University of Western Australia’s School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health in 2011. Dr Hopper has taught in biomechanics at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the University of Notre Dame, Australia. Dr Hopper’s work in dance science and performing arts health has involved several collaborations with international ballet companies such as the Birmingham Royal Ballet and with industry partners Harlequin Floors. Dr Hopper continues to work with the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science and the Australian Society for Performing Arts Healthcare in the development and dissemination of health evidence in preventing injury and illness in performing artists.
