Learning outcomes:
The subject goal is to provide for students knowledge focused on virtual reality, 3D computer graphics and advanced devices of HCI interface. Students will be able to work with terms in this field and gain a knowledge about algorithms and technologies in the field of VR. Subject prefers primarily visualization techniques particularly in relation to the definition and formalization of the virtual space including the transformation with the virtual objects. Advanced modeling techniques based on NURBS and transformations based on quaternions present in modeling area. The techniques of realistic imaging of the virtual scene, collision detection and modeling of persons and nature are presented here In relation to these matters. Students gain knowledge about virtualization sequence and they be able to work with systems of this type and design of some their technological parts.
