BBL-IS : Immersive Virtual Reality


Under the academic responsibility of Prof. Didier Grandjean and the technical responsibility of the software engineer Emmanuel Badier, the BBL-IS is an immersive virtual reality system which extends the experiments possibilities of the BBL. This system allows researchers to benefit of the state of the art in virtual reality for creating and using immersive virtual scenes. The manipulations of visual, auditory, and olfactory sensations coupled with the possibilities to track, eyes, head, and body movements of one participant allow scientists to investigate complex behaviors in realistic scenes. Moreover, physiological and EEG measures can be done into the system. This tool can immerse a user in a virtual world presenting various situations and stimuli, entirely controlled by the researchers.
