The use of VR for training simulation and collaboration is growing in the world. Use of VR can lead to big cost savings for our customers. Thales investigates and develops a 3D virtual world application (called Social Virtual Worlds)  to be added to the product portfolio for training & collaboration. The VR Application we use is the open source application called OpenSim with its associated VR viewer. OpenSim is based on the well-known VR SecondLife a product of Linden Labs. in the US

One of the developments related to the VR is the design and implementation of a new viewer for our VR application. The existing viewers we use are based partly on legacy code (from Linden Labs) and open source. The new Viewer we are building is to be completely opensource and more flexible towards the use of the virtual world. The Viewer rendering will be based upon  the GoDot rendering engine. The work on the viewer started 2 years ago and 8 students have been working on this viewer. Your task (or the task of the group) will be to complete the viewer and tofine- tune it in performance and possibly investigate the next functional enhancements to the viewer.
