About us
The goal of Shared Reality is to achieve high-fidelity distributed interaction, with both real and virtual data, at levels of presence that support the most demanding applications, and to do so in spite of sensor and bandwidth limitations. Our lab works with audio, video, and haptic technologies, building systems that leverage their capabilities to facilitate and enrich both human-computer and computer-mediated human-human interaction.
For questions about the lab, please contact Prof. Jeremy Cooperstock.
