At CYENS Centre of Excellence, we carry out high-impact R&D in Interactive media, AR/VR/XR, AI/ML and advanced analytics across several industry sectors including education, entertainment, cultural and creative industries, healthcare, IoT, and robotics. We provide access to technical expertise from the University of Cyprus, CUT (TEΠAK), the Open University of Cyprus, UCL and Max Plank Institute of Technology, as well as to our own specialised laboratories and equipment to help businesses to innovate or improve their operations and develop/test new products.
Below we are listing some of our services:
The CYENS Centre of Excellence creates a Digital Twin of Nicosia, which will be a virtual representation of the city. It will use real-time data and other sources to enable learning and reasoning and will dynamically recalibrate to improve decision making. Sectors deploying urban Digital Twin technology include Cities, Districts, Airports, Manufacturing Plants, Urban Infrastructure, and Utilities to optimize building maintenance and operations, environmental impact and sustainability, productivity and space utilisation.
The Digital Twin Services provided by iNicosia Team are the following:
1. 3D Reconstruction of an area, individual building or smaller scale objects using Laser Scanning and Terrestrial and Aerial Photogrammetry processes;
2. Data visualization of IOT connected devices and sensors - augmentation of generated 3D models through dynamic and static data and metadata;
3. Simulations on the generated models, including crowd, traffic weather, light, and more;
4. Heritage site capture and documentation;
5. Media production including walkthrough videos, presentation videos and other visual documentation;
6. Generation of Interactive models for a wide range of applications.
Video compression is the core technology in live and on-demand video streaming and video conferencing applications. We can provide consulting on the efficient utilization of available resources (video codec software, storage, compute power) for different video content (sports, news, movies, animation, etc.) that is application specific while considering the underlying communication medium (wired/ wireless).
We can also provide technical reports on video compression standards performance evaluation by jointly optimizing key video compression parameters such as video quality, bitrate demands, and complexity.
Virtual and Augmented Reality Applications
We have extensive expertise in developing Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) systems for a broad spectrum of industrial applications including shipping, aviation, medical, serios games and others including creative industries. Such systems may increase productivity, reduce training costs and lead to creation of new products. The implementation of such technologies in business operations can contribute to reduced errors, improved production, real time adaptability and safety of staff and general operational effectiveness.
Industries where VR/AR technologies are becoming accepted and implemented include the automotive industry, healthcare, tourism, real estate, architecture, recruitment, entertainment, education and sports. We are happy to discuss the potential engagement in all these sectors.
Cultural Heritage Applications
CYENS has extensive expertise in areas related to cultural and creative industries including museums. Such work involves multidisciplinary expertise in museum studies, history, arts, archaeology, photography and new technologies such as 360 photography/video, photogrammetry, 3D modelling and AR/VR. We provide consulting services to help setting new museums and advise the existing museums and galleries on the use of novel digital technologies for art and cultural heritage representation to improve public engagement and perception.
