April 27-28, 2005
We participated in a VR workshop about "Visualization to Support Human Decision-Making" as it relates to the nuclear power generation industry. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering (NPRE) at the University of Illinois and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

The workshop brought together academic researchers, nuclear utility executives, and industry experts from around the world. Technology demonstrations included the VisBox-SX12TM system at the NPRE deparment. Discussions centered around the application of VR and visualization technologies to areas such as training, construction/maintenance/decomission planning, and radiation visualization/dosage reduction.

VisBox-SX12TM installed at University of Illinois
November 23, 2004
A VisBox-SX12TM was installed in the Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The system features a large screen size (12'x9') and high resolution projectors that output 1400x1050 (SXGA+) at over 5000 lumens each!

The NPRE department is using the VisBox-SX12TM system to develop virtual models of nuclear power plants. These models will have a variety of applications, including: visualizing fundamentals, training, planning for both new reactors and for maintenance of existing reactors, and radiation visualization for dosage reduction.
