LIFEPLUS proposes an innovative 3D reconstruction of ancient frescos-paintings
through the real-time revival of their fauna and flora, featuring groups of
virtual animated characters with artificial life dramaturgical behaviours,
in an immersive AR environment. In greater detail LIFEPLUS objectives are:
-Real-time realistic virtual life in AR environments.
-Automatic Real-time Camera Tracking in unknown environments.
-Design of successful character based installations
-Expressive autonomous cinematography for interactive Virtual Environments.
Although initially targeted at Cultural Heritage Centres, the paradigm is
by no means limited to such subjects, but encompasses all types of future
Location-Based Entertainments, E-visitor Attractions as well as on-set visualisations
for the TV/movie industry.
