Ready, Set, MoCap!

We are another step closer to hosting our fantastic motion capture studio on campus.

Semester Begins

Welcome back to UHV! Fall semester started today!

Computation and Advanced Visualization Engineering (CAVE) lab.
Here is a T-160 camera by Vicon. We use these motion capture cameras for gaming, virtual reality and robotics research and projects.
Meet Eddie, a MARK-based robot.
9th Rock is a fun, puzzle-filled game developed by a team of our students. Spencer's animations were montion captured!!

What is CAVE?

CAVE is short for Computation and Advanced Visualization Engineering. Located at the University West 224, the laboratory hosts one of the most advanced motion capture equipments in the state and primarily serves our students within a number of fields of study ranging from digital gaming and simulation to art and humanities. The laboratory utilizes 24x T-160 Vicon cameras to capture rigid and non-rigid motion in both 2 and 3 dimensions.

Please take a few moments to check out our website, learn about our projects, and let us know if you have an application that can benefit from our facilities and equipment. We will be happy to help you get the data you need by utilizing our state-of-the-art Laboratory.

Research Spotlight:
