VR-Valley Twente


Project Name: VR-Valley Twente: Jacob

Abbreviation: VR-Valley Twente

Start date: January 1, 2000

End date: November 1, 2008

Project Description:


The Jacob project is one of the pilot projects of Virtual Reality Valley Twente, a collaboration of a number of local organisations in order to set up a knowledge centre on virtual reality and its applications.

The Jacob project involves a virtual agent that assists and instructs users in performing tasks in a virtual environment. Currently, the Jacob system is a stand-alone application, but in the future, Jacob will be integrated in the Virtual Music Centre (VMC) to provide instruction and navigation services.

In the Jacob project several concepts from several research areas have been integrated. We use knowledge and results from areas like intelligent tutoring systems, agent animation, interaction with objects in a virtual environment, and multimodal interaction.
