DREAM supports research teams with their software development and experimentations in many fields: network, visualization, artificial intelligence, real time computing, robotic and automatic computing, numerical simulation, etc. Below is a list of chosen realizations.
To answer the problem of diverging developments, we propose a modular framework that has no prior knowledge of its functionalities and does nothing but the link between software components that would otherwise not be compatible.
A new virtual reality facility is being built in the Sophia Antipolis research center. As a local representative of the D2T, DREAM is responsible for the immersive space conception, realization and animation.
The immersive space provides a powerful immersive setup to researchers involved in the VR field, an easy access to VR to researchers in related areas and a high quality show room to present the research center results.
It regroups two separate equipments, an image wall and a 4 sided immersive cube.
Both devices offer 6:1 sound restitution, Infitec stereo images and infrared tracking.
The Sophia Antipolis research unit has an experimental and evolutive computing platform.
This platform relies on a cluster approach: several generations of high performance servers are combined to provide heterogeneous parallel architecture. These computational nodes are arranged in sub-clusters, some of them are associated with a high performance network interconnect. 296 cores and 4 GPUs are currently available.
