CVG-HOLO – WAYFINDING HOLOGRAM PROJECT
XR-Lab is working with Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), in collaboration with UC Center for Simulations & Virtual Environments Research, to
- Develop and demonstrate a wayfinding hologram.
- Evaluate the hologram signage’s performance to augment passengers’ wayfinding experience.
- Develop concepts of Concourse-B store renovation, integrating emerging digital technologies related to Extended Reality
- Develop a digital twin model of the CVG Concourse-B store area.
The project will apply various methods, including eye-tracking, motion capture, motion tracking, and computer vision.

Tian. J., Tang, M., Wang. J., The effect of path environment on pedestrian’s route selection: A case study of University of Cincinnati.. 27th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA). Sydney, Australia. April. 2022.
The present study on the influence of the path environment on pedestrians’ route selection is mostly concentrated on the urban level while rarely discussed from the architectural level. Taking the University of Cincinnati (Ohio, US) as an example, this study aims to investigate whether the difference in the environmental settings of the route will affect pedestrians’ walking experiences and future route selection, with the ultimate goal of ascertaining the underlying relationship between the route environments and the user behavior in the process of route selection and implementation. This study selected three routes from the Langsam library to the CEAS library. The research methods included data analytics, questionnaires, and comparative analysis. Firstly, through surveys and an E4 wristband, psychological and physiological data were collected. Secondly, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to examine whether there was a significant difference in pedestrians’ walking experience among the three routes. Thirdly, through the analysis of questionnaires, the factors that play an important role in pedestrians’ route selection were determined. It can be concluded that the three routes with different environmental settings bring a different experience to participants. More specifically, the level of comfort and openness of the route significantly affects the route selection of pedestrians, while the degree of fatigue during walking does not. To sum up, for the transition space from outdoor to indoor, the factors affecting pedestrian route selection include the route’s degree of comfort and openness.
The paper is based on Jing Tain’s MS Thesis. Please check out the full thesis here.
Assess the effectiveness of using Virtual Reality for caregiver training
Result: COA EVRTalk
This project aims to investigate the effectiveness of using Virtual Reality to build empathy for the care recipient by allowing the caregiver to experience day-to-day life from the care recipient’s perspective. Ming Tang leads a research team to work with COA and LiveWell Collaborative to develop and evaluate an expandable set of VR training modules designed to help train family and friends who are thrust into the caregiving role. Ming Tang lead the LWC team and design the simulated decision trees, scenarios, and hand-tracking technologies in an immersive VR environment.
