XR @ DSP Centre


Bangor University’s Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Centre of Excellence, based at M-SParc, is a £6M research centre undertaking highly specialised research into digital communication systems such as 5G networks and ecosystems. One aspect of the DSP Centre is the use of curring edge technologies, on the application layer, as use-cases that make use of these ‘future networks’. This theme has strong synergies with the themes of Immersive Analytics and broader work on XR, such as medical training simulations.

XR or XReality is the fusion of real and computer-generated elements towards the production of new hybrid - synthetic - environments. As a field, it encompasses the full spectrum of immersive technologies, and includes Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Realities (i.e., the ‘X’ is variable). XR activities are a core theme of the Bangor Immersive Environments Lab (BIEL).

Links to prototypes and publications spectific to DSP use-cases will be posted here, as they become available/public.
