ESW has partnered with Professor John Rick of the Department of Archaeology at Stanford in continuing the Engineering for Archaeology program in Chavín de Huántar, a UNESCO heritage site. We have three projects currently underway: structural engineering, AR/VR reconstruction, and robotic exploration. The first team is structural analysis focused - we look for ways to preserve the integrity of the site while maintaining its accessibility. The second team focuses on creating a VR experience showing what the site might have originally looked like. The third focuses on using technology for archaeological exploration (i.e. robots).
This is a continuation of the Chavín Engineering in Archaeology program previously run by Stanford Global Engineering Programs
