Welcome to our research group!

The Networked Augmented Virtual Environment (NAVE) Research Group, led by Prof. Wei Wu and Zhong Zhou in the National Engineering Laboratory of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (NELVRAR) at Beihang University, is engaged in research in a broad multi-disciplinary areas of Artificial Intelligence, Mixed Reality, Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart City. We have institute and industrial collaborators from U.C.Berkeley, Univeristy of Kentuckey, University of Salford, University of Missouri, NWPU, Texas A&M University-Commerce, CAS, Baidu Research,  Goer Technology, Bigview Technology, etc.

Our work in Artificial Intelligence includes a series of deep learning based image/VR technologies:

  • person re-identification, car re-identification;
  • semantic segmentation;
  • multiple object tracking;
  • large-scale camera network topology based on spatio-temporal connectivity;
  • collaboration work in Baidu ApolloScape dataset.
Our work in Mixed Reality, IoT&Smart City mainly includes:
  • semantic image matching;
  • Immersive Digital Twins;
  • semantic SLAM and AR navigation;
  • Image based 3D recovery, shape and pose estimation;
  • Past: 3D reconstruction from a single image;
  • Past: Distributed virtual environment;
  • Past: HTML5-based editing for teaching assistance;
  • Past: mobile AR application for surgery assistance;
  • Past: sharing 3D deformation/Cloud-based 3D deformation.

In the past, we also worked on Natural Phenomena Simulation, mainly focusing on capturing, includes:

  • Light field retrieval and display;
  • Flame data retrieval, reconstructing their density and thermal fields;
  • Fluid simulation, esp. SPH-based solid-fliud interaction;
  • 3D fliud simulation on mobile devices
