About the assignment

Thales is investigating Virtual Reality technology (VR) for possible use in its products. The type of Virtual Reality technology Thales uses was started by Linden labs in the VS around 2004 and resulted in the well-known application second life. Thales uses an open source version of the same technology called OpenSim. This technology is targeted for virtual training , virtual meetings , remote control and decision support.

The VR system is composed of a Server ( OpenSIm) that manages the Objects in the virtual world and a client , the viewer that renders the VR Scene. We use a opensource viewer. This viewer however is to complex to use and cant be tailored to the purpose the VR is used for. Work is started with other educational institution to create a more flexible viewer as indicated in the picture below.

This assignment addresses the user interface of the viewer ( PI (plufg-in)  UI in the above picture) , we want a viewer of which the layout can be modified through configuration files , but also a design that allowed to tailor the UI to the specific use of the VR itself.  The work to be done is to

Investigate possible designs for a flexible UI Implement a prototype that mimics the base function of the current viewer.
