NIMO (Nordic Interaction and Mobility Research Platform) http://www.nimoproject.orgTimespan: 6/2011 5/2014 (36 months)ConsortiumLule University of Technology, Sweden (LTU) (coordinator)University of Oulu, Finland (UO)University of Lapland, Finland (UL)Total budget: 1.45 MEURMain public financier: Interreg IV A Nord programUO budget: 285 kEURCo-funders: BusinessOulu, OBP Research Ltd.

UO objectives Open 3D virtual model of Oulu city centre (Oulu3D) Pervasive city game for youthOpen 3D Internet City Laboratory projectUO gave Prof. Ojala 598500 EUR strategic research infrastructure grant Open 3D Internet City LaboratoryWith 25% co-funding total budget is 798000 EURSmall part of the co-funding is contributed the NIMO projectGrant is facilitated by the groundbreaking work done in the NIMO projectThree objectives to be implemented in 2013-2014Expansion of the Oulu3D modelAdd 40 blocks to the high fidelity city modelCreate low fidelity regional modelCreate indoor models of selected buildingsDesign and implement functionalities and interfaces supporting research use of the modelPurchase equipment supporting research use of the modelInternal and external calls for use cases (scenarios) for the model in Jan-Feb 2013

Open UBI Oulu FIRI 2013 funding application Academy of Finlands call for updating the Finnish research infrastructure roadmap 2013Infrastructures selected to the FIRI roadmap get substantial funding in 2014-2019 (25% matching funding)

Two stage callStage 1: Plan of intent (6 pages, Feb 2012)Reviewed by the national FIRI committeeStage 2: Full application (20 pages, May 2012)Reviewed by international panel

Oulu3D virtual model is one of the infrastructures included in the Open UBI Oulu applicationNIMO: UO project teamLeader: Professor Timo Ojala

Oulu3D: realXtend modeling exampleWhich part is realXtend model and which part is photo? Differences between realXtend model (low polygon) andCAD models (high polygon) have to be understood

Oulu3D: Current 9 block realXtend model

Optimized low-fidelity version of the phase #1 model has also been created in collaboration with the CIE researchers, targeted for lightweight web/mobile clients
