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.

More Information

Intended audience:

  • Senior bachelor students with interest in pursuing a bachelor's thesis in this area
  • Master students
  • 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.
