Students with ASD often struggle with social communication and behaviors. Autism XR provides a safe, web-based augmented reality (WebXR) environment that allows the user to privately practice their social skills and behaviors on a mobile device.
Rapid 3D Building Modeling by Sketching
Contributors: Chia-Yu Chen and I-Chen Lin, National Chiao Tung University
This poster proposes an intuitive tool for creating 3D architectural models, where a user only needs to sketch the outline of a frontal or oblique view of a building.
Adaptive Environments with PARALLEL REALITY™ Displays
Speakers: Matt Lathrop and Paul H. Dietz, Misapplied Sciences, Inc.
PARALLEL REALITY displays are a new type of shared display that can simultaneously target personalized content to each viewer — without special glasses. These displays can be used to adapt signage in an environment to accommodate each individual’s needs, such as what language they speak or their visual acuity.
