ViRAL wins Innovation fellowship fund for "Surgeon Training Device: integration of haptic devices with game technologies" project.

Dr. Ahmadi and Dr. Picinali are currently involved in a research project which aims to create a very affordable haptic device integrated into a 3D virtual environment to simulate the experience of a trainee surgeon in terms of visuals of human body and also feedback from surgery devices. This project has been funded by DMU through the Frontrunner placement scheme and by the 2012 East Midlands Innovation Fellowship (£13k, title “Surgeon Training Device: integration of haptic devices with game technologies”).
