The Faculty of Engineering Artificial Intelligence Group, led by Prof Maurice Pagnucco and Prof Claude Sammut, is installing a new Intelligent Environments Laboratory in the iCinema Scientia Facility. Its focus is to explore and prototype intelligent robotic applications that have capacity to interact within immersive virtual environments such as iCinema’s AVIE.

iCASTS - Mining VR
iCASTS is a virtual reality system that recreates mine environments for training scenarios, displayed in multiple theatre modes including AVIE for group training and iDome for individual training.
The Sydney Film Festival has selected Deluge and Nebula, two ARC Discovery experimental studies directed by Dennis Del Favero in collaboration with Stephen Sewell and Jeffrey Shaw, for this year’s Festival Program. They are to be screened in iCinema’s Scientia Facility June 8-19.
Prof Claude Sammut and Prof Sarah Kenderdine along with a large scale collaborative team from Faculties of Art & Design, Engineering and Science, have been awarded $370K to investigate Interactive Virtual Environments for next generation pedagogy.
