LabInvirtuo: Virtual Environments for science and technology

The hypothesis we defend is twofold:
1) the immersion of the users in a « Sensory Realistic Intelligent Virtual Environment » (EVIRS) where the body is engaged from a kinematic, gestural and sensory point of view will result in:
a) an increased recovery of the various procedural, episodic and autobiographical memories that are usually interrogated in the classical framework of oral archive productions ;
b) beyond declarative knowledge, the possibility of capturing gestures and embodied knowledge;
c) a better memorization of the knowledge proposed in mediation;
2) Collaborative Virtual Reality (VR) makes it possible, over and above traditional approaches in humanities, to develop multidisciplinary research methods and innovative mediations with a qualitative and quantitative leap in the elicitation and restitution of knowledge and know-how.
The project is in the field of knowledge engineering, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Digital Humanities (DH), on the topic: « Human activity versus history and heritage of industrial and sensorial cultural landscapes » as a demonstration.
Our objectives are to develop and validate :
a) virtual laboratories and interdisciplinary research methods in the crossed field of human sciences and computer science based on demonstrators of strong historical and heritage interest;
b) collaborative methods involving both institutional (museums, etc.) and non-institutional (workers, etc.) players in the field of cultural history and the digital preservation of industrial occupations;
c) scenarios located in the SRIVE and dedicated to mediation.
