Time, Location & Requirements
Course information and certificate requirements:
- The classes as well as the exercises will be held in English.
- Exercises will consist of practical and theoretical tasks. Practical exercises will be done in Unity.
- The lecture consists of one final exam, which will be hand written and a closed-book exam (no notes allowed)
- 08/09: Registration on TUMOnline is possible
- 09/09: Lecture & Exercise schedule updated
- 17/10: Information about projects posted
It will be possible to gain a grade bonus of 0.3 by working on a project during the course. Three different options are available:
- i) HoloLens? project with Unity
- ii) AR desktop application with Unity and Vuforia
- iii) Literature review
Due to hardware constraints, it will not be possible for all students to work with the HoloLens?
. In order to still provide a fair chance to everybody, there will a project pitch session before christmas during which you will present (in groups of 3-4 students) your project idea using a single slide. The best projects will be selected and implemented using the HoloLens?
. All other projects will be implemented as AR desktop application with a webcam and marker tracking. Requests for literature reviews (including topic preferences) have to be sent to one of the tutors before the project pitch session. Topics will be posted on the website shortly.
