Collaborative Virtual Environments for Space Science

7 September 2015

As part of the European research project CROSS DRIVE, our researchers at THINKlab are working with Thales Alenia Space Italia and the German Aerospace Centre to develop a collaborative telepresence workspace for space scientists.


The vision is to combine advanced 3D visualisation techniques and interactive tools in conjunction with immersive virtual telepresence. The main aim is to give scientists and engineers the impression of being teleported to the surface of Mars, and to allow them to stand together on a planetary surface surrounded by all their information and tools.
