UVR Lab. was formed
in Feb. 2001 at GIST to study and develop “Virtual Reality in Smart
computing environments” that process multimodal input, perceive
user’s intention and emotion, and respond to user’s request through
Augmented Reality. Since 2012, UVR Lab moved to KAIST GSCT and restarted
with a theme of “FUN in Ubiquitous VR.”

Hochul Cho, Jangyoon Kim, and Woontack Woo. "Novel View Synthesis with Multiple 360 Images for Large-Scale 6-DOF Virtual Reality System." In Proceedings of IEEE Virtual Reality (VR), 2019.
We present a novel view synthesis method that allows users to experience a large-scale Six-Degree-of-Freedom (6-DOF) virtual environment. Our main contributions are the construction of a large-scale 6-DOF virtual environment using multiple 360 images as well as synthesis of a scene from novel viewpoints. Novel view synthesis from a single 360 image can give free viewpoint experience with full 6-DOF of head motion to players, but the moveable space is limited within a context of the image. We propose a novel view synthesis process that references multiple 360 images via reconstructing a large-scale real world based virtual data map and perform a weighted blending for interpolating multiple novel view images. Our results show that our approach provides a wider area of virtual environment as well as a smooth transition between each reference 360 images.
