High Performance Wireless VR

We now have a working pipeline for wireless VR that can simultaneously be high performance (computationally and/or graphically).  Here is a flow chart:

Despite how many different parts there are, it works reliably.

Here are the next steps to improving it:

  1. Replace Garfield with the render cluster in the Andrews Information Systems Building.
  2. Replace NVIDIA Gamestream and the Moonlight app with our in-house encoder / streamer / decoder solution that is currently in the works.
  3. Allow for simulation software besides Unity
  4. Replace the current VR headset with something nicer (already purchased, not yet tried).
