CV

Victor Häfner studied physics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and obtained his degree in march 2012. In April 2014 he started as a research associate at the Institute of Information Management (IMI, KIT) in the research group Smart Immersive Environments. His research topics are in the field of virtual reality with a focus on machine engineering applications. His activities and interests are in VR software and hardware development, numerical simulations, computer vision and computer graphics.

Research

- Developement of virtual reality engine PolyVR

- New paradigms for Interaction in virutal and mixed reality systems 

Projekte
title short description

For the project "DriveSim", IMI team develops a novel intelligent driving simulator that is tailored to the needs of the Chinese driving school students using technology like virtual reality and artificial intelliegence to create experience closest to reality.

"Multidimensional Service Prototyping" and development of tecniques and tecnologies for "Rapid-Service-Prototyping"

PolyVR is a virtual reality 3D engine with main focus is the scalability of hardware setups and scene authoring and management.
