The demand for mobility is increasing dramatically. At the same time, population growth, climate change and the scarcity of resources reveal our planet’s limitations. MobiGlobe gives insights into such complex systems and functions as a visual databank covering 48 themes ranging from “space” to “resources”. It can be experienced on interactive stations in various locations throughout the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, or on a gesture-controlled media wall. Its core application architecture, using the Unity Game Engine, allows for parametrically visualising, managing and renewing data, and is complemented with an interaction and display application layer specific to several installation formats. The media wall allows users to effortlessly navigate with a few intuitive gestures and body movements, enhanced by rich sound design, through a large and complex set of data visualisations.
