This project funded by Inria and led by Ludovic Hoyet (team MimeTIC, Inria Rennes) aims at designing avatars (i.e., the user’s representation in virtual environments) that are better embodied, more interactive and more social, through improving all the pipeline related to avatars, from acquisition and simulation, to designing novel interaction paradigms and multi-sensory feedback.
The project started in 2018 and involves 6 Inria teams (GraphDeco, Hybrid, Loki, MimeTIC, Morpheo, Potioc), as well as our external academic partner Prof. Mel Slater (Uni. Barcelona) and 2 industrial partners (InterDigital and Faurecia).
Through the project, you will find on this website information about advancement, publications, dissemination, and events organised by the consortium.
