Advances in 3D immersive environments offer great potential for collaboration in circumstances that rely heavily on 3D visual models for collaboration, coordination, and data visualization (e.g., construction, medical, architecture). As existing platforms quickly evolve, become more widespread, and research aims to validate the benefits of AR/VR over more traditional platforms, user-centered approaches become more important, especially when supporting multiple users in 3D immersive environments. This article discusses our experience designing an adaptable, non-domain-specific, federated architecture for multimodal systems and virtual environments based on Human Factors and Human Computer Interaction methodologies.
