RGU Computing Visit to BP HIVE in Dyce

I have arranged a visit to BP’s HIVE – Highly Immersive Virtual Environment on Friday 23rd March from 09:30 to 11:00. The visit will go through a number of demos highlighting how the HIVE is used. There may also be time for demos of RFID / Video technology in use within BP. If you are interested in attending this then do get in contact with me as places are limited.

“The Aberdeen HIVE suite contains 3 virtual reality meeting rooms enabling users to experience immersion in full 3D imagery, enhancing decision making and collaboration. Its use spans engineering 3D modelling used for planning maintenance as well as engineering modifications. Reservoir / well modelling.”

Location
Below is a map of where BP is located, as you can see it is situated just before the Marriot Hotel which is located at the roundabout intersecting Victoria Street and Riverview Drive.

There are a number of bus stops located very close to BP as you can see if you zoom in on the location map. Probably the easiest option is to get the 21 or 21A. Details of bus timings area available from the first group website one can also view this as a pdf document.
