This year marked the 16th anniversary of The Annual International Conference on Wireless Communications & Mobile Computing (IWCMC 2020) under the theme of “Internet of Everything“. In recent years, it has attracted the technical community from all around the world, sealing its reputation as one of the major international conferences in the field of wireless communications. IWCMC 2020 welcomes contributions reporting original research results in all areas of wireless technology as well as in applications, services, and business.
TRACTION Consortium member Anderson Augusto Simiscuka of Dublin City University presented his paper, “Performance Evaluation of a Multi-User Virtual Reality Platform” regarding ongoing VR research supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme for the TRACTION project . His research is mainly focused on Internet of Things (IoT) communications performance and rich media integration, such as VR, with IoT devices. He is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Performance Engineering Laboratory and the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, School of Electronic Engineering, Dublin City University.
His paper outlines how multi-user VR applications provide shared experiences where users can communicate and interact in the same virtual space, along with the challenges presented in a shared environment, such as network performance, quality of service (QoS) and sessions privacy. The paper offers an overview of a multi-user VR application and and evaluation of network behaviour in a number of scenarios, including real VR headsets (i.e. Oculus Rift), as well as simulated ones.
 This Project has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870610.
