The 3D-LIVE project aims to develop and experiment a User Driven Mixed Reality and Immersive platform connected to EXPERIMEDIA facilities (Future Internet Research and Experimentation-FIRE testbeds) in order to investigate the Future Internet (FI) broadband capacity to support Real‐Time immersive situations as well as evaluating both the Quality of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Services when users are fully immersed into Future Internet (IoS and IoT) based live (sport) mixed environments.


The selected FIRE facilities are the CAR sport facility in Barcelona and Schladming sky resort. Of particular interest is the EXPERIMEDIA advancement in new methods and algorithms for content processing targeting the efficient delivery of augmented reality to mobile devices and 3D processing for on the fly reconstruction of live events in indoor geo‐localised spaces.
