Turnkey projection system for the VR dome for ‘Streetlab‘ motion base, featuring five LED front projection channels and one LED floor projection channel including an domeprojection.com auto-calibration system.
CEAL is a huge subterranean research lab located beneath Toronto Rehabʼs University Centre, being the Centrepiece of the iDAPT Centre for Rehabilitation Research. We provided the Visual Dome Solution for the Streetlab – an immersive virtual environment featuring a treadmill and rolling road on a motion base.
CEAL features the worldʼs first hydraulic motion simulator, which uniquely combines motion, visual and aural simulation techniques to create realistic and challenging environments that can mimic everyday challenges faced by older people and those with disabling injury or illness.
The 6-degree-of-freedom motion platform can be configured with three different payloads. The Streetlab payload features a 180 degree field-of-view curved visual projection screen combined with a treadmill interface and a wheelchair simulator. Its display system is a virtual reality dome where people can walk through virtual downtown Toronto while being challenged by busy intersections and obstacles on the street. project: syntropy was engaged to engineer and deliver the complete projection system for the VR dome, featuring five LED front projection channels and one LED floor projection channel including an domeprojection.com auto-calibration system. Integration and initial calibration was done in Canada by our specialists.
