In order to make the CAVCaM facilities and expertise available to as many DRI researchers as possible, we are putting considerable effort toward developing and porting visualization and virtual reality software that will be usable by a range of research activities.
While we also work on custom software and customized extensions to existing software as required by research grants in which we participate, for many DRI researchers, it will be possible for them to bring us their data, and then see it in the CAVE a few days later, perhaps sooner. As we continue to expand the Center's application and data format repertoire, the set of researchers will approach the full domain, and the lead time for the data will shrink.
In addition to the "working" applications, we also have a selection of applications that we use to demonstrate the technology of virtual reality. Many of these applications do not directly provide the means for viewing research data, but they do help to show some of the capabilities of virtual reality, that will hopefully inspire us and our collaborators to find optimal ways of developing useful software tools.
