Our laboratories and test beds are key components of our research at IST. Ample and flexible lab space is reconfigurable to match project and program requirements. (Click on titles to go there.)
- Interactive Realities Laboratory
Go straight to the Interactive Realities Laboratory Virtual and augmented reality research.
- Stokes High Performance Computing Center
- Human Systems Integration Research
- ACTIVE Lab
Applied Cognition and Training in Immersive Virtual Environments. Investigating how distributed training systems can be evaluated for effeciveness and usability.
- Information Systems Technology
Solving client needs through development and application of internet-based information systems. To see the research management solution developed for UCF's Office of Research and Commercialization, go here.
- E2i Creative Studio
IST's E2i Creative Studio projects explore human performance in applications as diverse as medical, military and entertainment. Applications of the lab's research include situational awareness training, teacher screening and training, creative collaboration, experiential entertainment, free choice learning, naturalistic decision-making, virtual heritage social networks and cognitive and physical rehabilitation.
- SREAL (Synthetic Reality Lab)
The Synthetic Reality Laboratory (SREAL) team consists of five faculty researchers, thirteen affiliated faculty members, sixteen PhD students, six undergraduate research assistants two full-time artists (modelers/animators), and a network of campus and institute collaborators. The lab's research activities include interaction with human surrogates (virtual and physical/virtual); robotics; motion tracking/capture; computer graphics; image processing; digital avateering*; experiential learning; and digital heritage.
* avateering: creating, animating and interacting with avatars. The human is the avateer, its digital "character" is the avatar.
- Mixed Emerging Technology Integration Lab (METIL)
Integration of mobile, games and virtual worlds for learning across multiple platforms.
- SimMBIOS Lab
Simulations for mathematical and biological inspired systems.
- RAPTER Lab
Research on learning and performance technology and evaluation and enhancement of its effectiveness.

labs include the MURI Lab, the Transportation Research Group (TRG),
and the Center for Applied Human Factors in Aviation (CAHFA))
- Cognitive Sciences Lab at IST
A collaborating research unit affiliated with IST and the Department of Philosophy.
- Medical Emergencies Simulation Lab
- RETRO Laboratory
a collaborative project among IST, Digital Media and others
currently working on serious games research.
