The two platforms Immersia and Immermove offer an immersive collaborative space called ImmerStar, intended for the regional scientific and industrial community, for national and international projects.

IMMERSIA is a 3D virtual reality platform which, thanks to its exceptional dimensions (10x3x3m wide), offers an environment for experimentation, particularly in the context of real-time and multi-modal interaction (vision, sound, haptics, brain-computer interface) between humans and virtual models.

IMMERMOVE is a technological platform dedicated to motion capture, extended by a virtual reality device. Installed at ENS Rennes on the Ker Lann campus in Bruz, it enables the capture of rapid movements (sports for example) or of a group of people to the millimeter, in order to study human behavior such as crowd-movement or sport gestures.

NEURINFO is a technical platform offering imaging resources for the development and enhancement of clinical, methodological and technological research activities.
It focuses on in vivo human imaging and neuroinformatics, particularly in the context of diseases of the nervous system.

NEURINFO is equipped with a 3T MRI installed at the CHU of Rennes.

The robotics platform ROBSTAR labeled by the University of Rennes 1 consists of 6 platforms:

  • a robotic vision platform for validating research in visual servoing;

  • a mobile robotics platform used in particular to validate research in navigation by vision and driving assistance;

  • a medical robotics platform for work on needle insertion, elastography and improvement of the quality of ultrasound images;

  • a flotilla of indoor UAVs for research around patrol flight and control using vision;

  • an advanced handling robotics platform for validating work based on the capture or manipulation of objects;

  • a set of haptic interfaces including a joystick with force feedback or bracelets allowing a human to interact with previous robotic systems for robotics applications
