Development

One of the things that we’re interested in here at CLTD is the use of technology in education.  This ranges from using what is widely available in terms of educational technologies to developing new content and new methods on the industry’s cutting edge.

This interest is based in part on our experiences working in academia internationally. 

 

We utilize drone technology, photogrammetry and specialized architectural modeling software to document heritage sites in Charlottetown and Eastern PEI.  The resulting models are used to create immersive environments in educational Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) apps for iOS and Android platforms.

We use the same technology to map, model, analyze and represent heritage sites in the Arabian Gulf and western Indian Ocean region in collaboration with the Gulf Studies Centre at the University of Qatar in Doha and the Liverpool School of Architecture.

We work with a Tokyo-based software engineering company, Forum 8, to implement a diagnostic and therapeutic program using UC/Win Road, a customized VR traffic simulator and Google Cardboard VR goggles to map and exercise spatial navigations skills among the elderly on PEI, especially patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
