Technology platform ViZiR is labeled by Arts et Métiers ParisTech network as a platform for real and virtual prototyping to support innovation, design and industrialization. Institut Image is responsible for the coordination of the platform that brings together seven laboratories ( UMR 3 , 3 and 1 EA ERDT ) of 8 sites. Institut Image helps ViZiR for interaction with the digital model using virtual reality technologies .
At Institut Image , the ViZiR platform takes the form of a set of human and material resources to support research, training and recovery. Vizier and is a node of convergence for these three missions. The aim of the Institute is to strengthen the image of vizier operation by
- Development of a software tool for virtual immersion
- Technical team of engineers
- Engineer in charge of development
Technological barriers addressed by the Vizier platform are:
- Multi -modality in virtual reality
- high performance interactive visualization
- software tool
Institut Image has spread three companies created by some of its engineers :

Creation of international conferences
Institut Image created an international conference in 2009: WinVR
conference, backed by the ASME
and the first edition was held in Chalon-sur-Saône, the second edition Ames (USA) in 2010 and the third Milan (Italy) in 2011.
Last conference: 2011
Institut Image co-organizes with Renault
and IFSTTAR DSC
international conference (Driving Simulation Conference) which takes place at Arts et Métiers ParisTech center of Paris every two years.
Last conference: 2012
Days Geometry together (almost) every year the French community of researchers in computational geometry. They last 5 days in general.
Last conference: 2012
Joint laboratory with industry
Institut Image created with the Renault joint laboratory LIV (Laboratory Virtual immersion) Arts et Métiers ParisTech - Renault in October 2011. This joint laboratory amplifies the collaborative research projects conducted with technocentre Renault on the themes of driving simulation and interaction with the digital model.
