DIVING with NEW TECHNOLOGIES in Crotone:
A Virtual Reality system allows non-diver tourists to live a virtual dive experience and learn both general information and historical-cultural contents related to the wrecks and the surrounding seabed. Users can explore the 3D reconstruction of the underwater site and can receive information and contents about the submerged exhibits and structures of the underwater site.
An Augmented Diving system allows divers to have a virtual guide of the underwater archaeological site. It is based on a tablet properly equipped with a waterproof case and an integrated system for acoustic localization and inertial navigation. The tablet guides the diver along the selected track, it shows a 3D map representing the environment around the diver, it provides useful information about underwater artifacts and structures. The diver can also change the view mode or open the camera device to shoot a photo. Photos are automatically geo-referenced and can be uploaded to the most common social platforms where people can share the most exciting moments of the dive.
