The bachelor project IVOR (interactive, virtual operation room) is developing a human-centered helping system in the operation room.
The bachelor project VR-Coralreef is developing a simuluation as a video game of coralreefs and
its behaviors when the parameters are changing, in cooperation with the ZMT. The simuluation uses
the Microsoft Kinect and stereo rendering for different 3D devices.
The master project Kinaptic is developing a video game for blind
and sighted people using the Microsoft Kinect, haptic feedback devices and stereo rendering for different 3D devices.
Therefore this project is researching contact-free and multimodal interaction metaphors: Gesture, speech, skin resistance,
line of sight, etc. Using the example of setting a mirror: The voice command “Adjust mirror” and a corresponding hand or
finger movement may be used to configure the right side mirror. A driving simulator provides the necessary means for testing
by linking these new metaphors to parts of a virtual car.
The goal of this student project was to simulate particle systems,
where the so-called Lennard-Jones acts between pairs of particles,
with as many particles as possible while still keeping the computations (almost) real-time.
