With these challenges in mind, Aichi Shukutoku University's Faculty of Human Informatics introduced Barco projection type VR system "CAVE" (3-screens) along with the establishment of a new course - Sensibility Engineering and started its operation in April 2023.
Professor Hiroko Mori talks about the merits of using "CAVE" in the research and education field of "Sensibility Engineering" and in what situations the CAVE is used for.
Compared to 3D goggles, the CAVE VR system provides a far more realistic sense of immersion. It is utilized in both the development and discharge of excellent human resources. She hopes that the CAVE VR system will break away from "just an experiment" in terms of universal design and bring a visual experience closer to the real world. This will lead to specific environmental improvement proposals for a society in which diverse people including people with disabilities can participate, not just in terms of age, gender, and race.
“We believe that it will lead to a future image that will be applied to the production-method and “what content should be” when turning picture books into VR content,” she said.
