The Virtual Experiences Laboratory (VXLab) is a multi-disciplinary virtual laboratory connecting visualisation and automation facilities in RMIT and industry.
We provide a space for students and industry to access advanced technology and expertise. The VXLab supports simulated components in the cloud, virtualisation and telepresence. Users explore collaborative experimental design, operation and testing of global cyberphysical systems.
For virtual and annotated reality, the VXLab includes advanced gaming and visualisation devices.
We support a broad range of industry applications including manufacturing, electronic engineering, information technology, analytics, games and medical imaging.
Specific use cases for the VXLab include:
Industry and select academic student projects are supported by the lab.
Activities include AICAUSE Collaborative Engineering and Collaborative Engineering 2 projects, and summer projects and student capstone programming projects in the School of Science.
Industry and research centres who wish to partner with or utilise the facility, please contact Dr Ian Peake.
Students wishing to use the facility should contact their lecturer or research supervisor.
Director - Professor James Harland
Special expertise and/or user representatives are appointed to the committee from time to time.
If you are a user and wish to volunteer, please contact the lab manager, Dr Ian Peake, in the first instance.
