The Mediterraean Virtual Reality Center [CRVM] is a technological platform of the Institute of Movement Sciences (Joint Research Unit CNRS / University of the Mediterranean.
The CRVM was built in 2006, thanks to a collaboration between the University of the Mediterranean, The National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), The City of Marseille, Regional and County Councils. The CRVM aims at being an operational link between Engineering, Life and Technological Sciences, as well as between Research and Industry. The CRVM is the first technological platform in France, whose primary mission is the study of human movement in a total immersion environment. It offers a state-of-the-art system, with stereoscopic vision (Infitec), on a total screen surface (reconfigurable) of 45 m², and optical tracking (ART) for real-time interaction. The support team also provide multi-disciplinary expertise in Behavioral Neuroscience.
