Skyguide at Museum for Transportation Lucerne
The Swiss Museum of Transport is the most visited museum in Switzerland. Together with Alltag and Neongrau, Intolight has designed an interactive exhibition area for the air traffic control provider Skyguide.
Our task was to present the topic of air safety in the context of a modern museum. Skyguide was also to be presented, which, with 1,500 employees at 14 locations, would organize air navigation services in Switzerland and neighbouring countries.
Two central exhibits and a series of audio and video stations communicate the topic to the broadly diversified age group of visitors. The core of the exhibition area is a 3.50m x 2.00m large 3D relief on which all flight movements of Switzerland can be displayed in real time. With the help of filters, visitors can display additional content on a touch terminal. Intolight created a 3D model for the implementation from Nasa’s SRMT data, which was then produced with a CNC milling machine.
Floor Projection Game
For the younger target group, Intolight realised a floor projection game in which children and adults can get to know the profession of air traffic controller. The aim is to guide aircraft safely through Swiss airspace by targeting a 6.00m x 8.00m area. Technically, Intolight used four 3D cameras to record the visitors’ movements on the playing field.
On the software side, Intolight used VVVV and its successor VL. The proprietary development DX.11 Particles and VVVV Message were used for this purpose.
