General Information

The TVLab offers a flexible, collaborative and accessible research environment with many options for experimentation in the digital and physical realms. Located on the second floor of Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, we work with emergent technology to expand access to digital representation tools and techniques across degree programs. The TVLab is equipped with a range of XR technologies including AR & VR (HTC Vive, Hololens etc.), 3D Scanning and spatial mapping equipment (Kinect, LiDAR, photogrammetry) and computational devices (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel Galileo). The lab also offers resources for virtual production and capture technology including video cameras, 360 cameras, drones, and projectors. The table-mounted robotic arm combines immersive technology with analog fabrication. The space is designed to share and learn: The TVLab aggregates an open source database for our faculty and students containing hand picked software and hardware tutorials, and a projection wall allows for collective visualization.
