Visitors can discover for themselves the most exciting research currently underway at CityU. Walking into the novel hemispherical projection system, iDome, we can appreciate the 3D visual effects created by images reflected via spherical mirrors, and watch closely how robots developed by the Centre for Robotics and Automation simulate human actions and work in environments hazardous to people.
