HIVE’s mission is to encourage and support the adoption of
visualization and virtual reality technology across a range of
disciplines. Furthermore, staff can provide high quality bespoke
services including laser scanning, motion capture and 3D
HIVE is located within the Computer Science subject group.
Research undertaken within HIVE is integral to the School’s
HIVE has an array of customers ranging from researchers,
schools and colleges to the commercial sector. Our work with
research staff and students comes from our colleagues here at the
University of Hull. However, we also support projects where the
network of academics is national and/or international.
Providing a range of services to schools and colleges ensures
that especially within the local area we are exposing students to
cutting edge technology, supporting them with regard to
considering career options. The focus of this work is to raise
aspirations towards further and higher education, and interest in
science, technology, engineering and maths.
If a business or individual requests the services of HIVE for a
bespoke project, we explore together if and how HIVE can indeed
offer a quality solution. Where relevant, HIVE will make a
potential client aware of other services within the University that
may be of relevance; for example the expertise in
software development by SEED.
We strongly encourage all potential clients of HIVE to make
contact and discuss their area(s) of interest. The next step is to
visit HIVE and experience first hand the wide range of technologies
available; this can refine initial ideas and/or create new threads
worthy of consideration. To read case studies of how HIVE has been
utilised in the past, please use the research, school and
commercial links on the left menu bar.
