The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has launched IMMERSE, the Center for Immersive Computing, led by Professor Sarita Adve. The multidisciplinary center brings together experts in immersive technologies, applications, and human experience for research, education, and infrastructure to accelerate a new era of immersive computing.
We aim to democratize extended reality (XR) systems research, development, and benchmarking by providing
A reference open source end-to-end XR system testbed, with state-of-the-art components connected with a modular runtime
A benchmarking methodology for XR systems, including reference system configurations, applications, data sets, and metrics
A community where the multidisciplinary XR systems research and development stakeholders come together
Sarita Adve gave a talk on ILLIXR at the Hot3D session at High Performance Graphics 2022. Talk is available here.
Sarita Adve gave a talk on ILLIXR at the Sandia National Labs' 4th Annual XR Conference in July 2022. Talk is available here.
Sarita Adve has received a $5M Principles and Practice of Scalable Systems (PPoSS) grant from the National Science Foundation to develop design methodologies for a scalable, domain-specific, heterogeneous, distributed edge/cloud system with stringent constraints on latency, energy, thermal power, computational requirements, and size.
