Prof. Gudrun Klinker, Ph.D.
(with Andreas Dippon
and Patrick Maier
5 ECTS Credits
The class will be taught in English.
Invited talk by Prof. J.Edward Swan this Friday, June 7, 14:00-15:00 at the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS)
How Do We Measure Depth Perception in Near-Field Augmented Reality?
Time & Location
Lecture starts on Wednesday, 17. April, 2013
Exercises start on Tuesday, 23. April, 2013
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.
This class presents the technical foundations of Augmented Reality - as used in current international research and applications.
- Diploma students: Hauptstudium Informatik I (Praktische Informatik)
- Senior bachelor students with interest in pursuing a bachelor's thesis in this area
- Master students
- Grundstudium Informatik
- First two years of Bachelor Informatik
- The class consists of both a weekly lecture and weekly exercises!
- Exercises constitute half of the credits and thus will make up half of the grade (exam questions).
- Exam questions will be based on experiences gained by attending the exercise meetings and by working on the homework. It will not be enough to just read and understand solutions to the homework. The learning experience and insights gained by struggling with the assignments is essential.
Exams: written, closed book
- Duration: 90 minutes
- Language: assignment sheet in English, answers can be given in English or German
- Exam date: Fr 26.07.2013, 13:00 - 14:30
- Exam Review: Thursday, 08.08.2013, 14:00 - 15:00 in Room 00.13.062 bring your student ID
- Location: 5101.EG.501 (2501, Rudolf-Mößbauer-Hörsaal) (if needed: 5101.EG.502 (2502, Physik Hörsaal 2)) There will be lists with your names on the doors.
- There will be a 0.3 bonus for good project presentations
- Repeat exam (Wiederholungsklausur)
written, 90 minutes, questions in English
Date: 25.09.2013, 08:30 - 10:00
Location: Interims Hörsaal 1.
We will use C++ in the Exercises.
