The Virtual Campus project received support from NVIDIA in terms of hardware grant of a Tesla K40 GPU. We propose to build an immersive and interactive virtual reality environment for university campus with navigation capabilities. The virtual reality system will incorporate dynamic and interactive physics based effects like wind, cloth, water, rain and smoke. In order to achieve high quality rendering, we plan to model the campus geometry in great detail and use state-of-the-art real-time rendering tools. The virtual reality system will be powered by powerful GPUs to carry out compute intensive rendering and physics simulation tasks. The virtual reality system will also incorporate advanced capabilities like real-time monitoring, Location Based Services, and vision based updates to the model.
