IOMEGA VR platform

IOMEGA VR is an experimentation, demonstration and training platform specialized in the development of immersive tools dedicated to engineering and management of response networks.

It enables companies, whatever their size, positioning and experience, to carry out their research & development programs on these topics. The topics covered range from artificial intelligence for decision-making to immersive training and the visualization of complex situations.

IOMEGA VR is a component of the Centre Génie Industriel, one of the 3 research centers of IMT Mines Albi.

  • to design & develop a software prototype,
  • conduct & analyze an experimental approach.

Research partnership

A vocation to carry or integrate partnership projects with industrial and/or public financing:

  • Collaborative projects (ANR, EU, etc.)
  • Joint industrial laboratories (direct bipartite contract)
  • Chair of sponsorship

Continued education

Sequences of in-house or inter-company ongoing training requiring highly interactive computer and pedagogical facilities:

  • Design & implementation of training courses
  • Premises made available to partners
