Virtual Reality (VR) Training​ Course Overview

Virtual Reality (VR) is the application of computer technology for building a simulated environment. The users are immersed and can interact with three-dimensional worlds, instead of viewing a screen in front of them. The position of the user’s eyes is situated within the simulated environment, and the graphics react accordingly with the movement of the user’s head. This technology creates a convincing and interactive environment for the user by making use of sensors and math.

This Virtual Reality Training course will provide knowledge on the virtual reality technology and its functioning. Delegates will get familiar with the geometry of virtual worlds and the concept of light and optics in VR. In addition, they will gain an understanding of the concepts of visual perception and visual rendering. This 1-day course will equip delegates with the knowledge of motion in real and virtual worlds, and tracking. Delegates will acquire a thorough understanding of tracking and auditory perception and rendering.
