Research Topics

Virtual & Augmented Reality

The fusion of the real and virtual world enables a wide range of applications for intuitive human-machine interaction, simulation of complex scenarios and visualization of information. At its core are the main topics of visual computing, virtual reality systems and virtual 3D worlds. Modern sensor technology enables the recording of objects and external scenarios as well as interaction with them. New visualization methods and automated procedures enable natural reconstructions in real time.
