SUN - Social and hUman ceNtered XR

The Social and hUman ceNtered XR (SUN) project aims at investigating and developing extended reality (XR) solutions that integrate the physical and the virtual world in a convincing way, from a human and social perspective. The virtual world will be a means to augment the physical world with new opportunities for social and human interaction. The project will develop solutions to surpass current limitations, including the development of:

  • Scalable solutions to obtain plausible and convincing virtual copies of physical objects and environments;
  • Solutions for a seamless and convincing interaction between the physical and the virtual world;
  • Wearable sensors and haptic interfaces for convincing and natural interaction with the virtual environment;
  • Artificial intelligence-based solutions to address current computing, memory, and network limitations of wearable devices;

IN2 coordinates the integration of the components of the SUN platform and leads the co-creation activities to define the user-requirements. Furthermore, we lead the successful transfer of the project results to the market, facilitating the Business Model elaboration for the SUN platform and the creation of the exploitation plans. We expect to extend out know-how in the XR domain, both in terms of the market, application scenarios potential and the innovation that can lead to new products or improvements thanks to technology spillovers.
