Bereich: Informatik Hauptstudium (WP INF ab 5)
Time and Date:
The seminar will be held in two block sessions on friday, June 29 and friday, July 13. The second block is organized as an excursion to VW in Wolfsburg to visit their virtual reality laboratory and get a demonstration of installed vision-based tracking technology.
Room: Gabelsberger Str. 39, Room G310 (1. meeting), VW Wolfsburg (2. meeting)
Preparatory meeting: Registration by Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Start: Wednesday, April 25, 2001
Augmented Reality (AR) allows users to view computer information that is graphically embedded within the real three-dimensional world. Using a semi-transparent head-mounted display (HMD) attached to a wearable computer, a user can inspect and manipulate objects while viewing information about these objects in the HMD. This information is typically displayed as virtual objects in the real world, thus augmenting the perception of the user. The wearable computer enables users to carry their work as they normally do, without imposing constraints on their mobility or their hand. AR applications span from medical minimally invasive surgery to manufacturing, from machine inspection and repair to games and tourist guides.
In this "Hauptseminar" students will gain detailed insights into new approaches and applications of AR. To this end, each meeting will cover
The seminar will be conducted in English.
