Digital Research Week: hands-on demonstrations

  • Start Date: April 25, 2018 at 11:00 am
  • End Date: April 25, 2018 at 4:00 pm
  • Location: Atrium, ESLC building, University Park
  • Ticket Price: 0.00

As part of Digital Research Week, come along to a day of demonstrations of some of the University of Nottingham’s latest home-grown digital innovations.

Researchers from all faculties have been invited to showcase innovative technology that they have been working on. We’ll aim to showcase a range of unique and broad of areas of application including fitbits for sheep, building 3D models of plants, virtual reality (VR) games exploring corruption in the workplace and detecting slavery from space.

Technologies include augmented reality, virtual reality, robotic sensors, biofeedback, internet of things and computer vision.

Demonstrations on the day will include among others:

  • Corrupt Kitchen: A virtual reality game designed to playfully explore corruption and health & safety breaches in the workplace. Watch the video.
  • Breathing Space: A tent-like structure that rises and falls based on a user’s breathing patterns, as measured by a physiological sensor.
  • Plant Phenotyping Robot: A very large robotic arm that automatically takes pictures and creates 3D models of plants as they grow. Watch the video.
  • Projection Augmented Relief Models: An interactive 3D sculpted landscape with a series of real-time projections and animated visualisations layered on top.

The event presents a completely unique opportunity to see and try out all of these technologies in one space, and view demonstrations from the researchers who built the technologies.

You can find out more about all of the demonstrations on the Digital Research Blog.

To attend, head along to the Atrium, ESLC building, University Park between 11am-4pm, Wednesday 25 April.
