Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this module, students will be able to:

  • Review and asses the state-of-the-art in augmented reality technologies
  • Develop an augmented reality solution (project) including implementation, testing, evaluation, demonstration, and documentation
  • Come up with own ideas for an augmented reality project
Learning Aims

This course will cover fundamentals and state-of-the-art in augmented reality, as well as related areas of 3D computer vision and graphics. Theoretical background as well as practical solutions and applications will be presented in the lectures. Students will get direct exposure to latest research results of Prof. Smolic’s research team V-SENSE. In their own work, students will be asked to design an own project (individual or groups) from idea, via implementation, testing, evaluation, demonstration, to documentation. In this way they will experience the full lifecycle of a practical project, as they will face it once they leave the university in either industry or research. A default project will be suggested as fallback, still covering the full lifecycle except the idea.
