Diploma Thesis I
• problem: it does not make sense to fix the
  topics in advance
• but field will be „Hybrid Tracking“ (but we
  are not stuck to it)
     – possible starting point: current diploma-thesis
       (Franz, Dagmar, Daniel)
• we will deploy and use DWARF at the
  HITLAB
• project description for DAAD

Integrating ARToolkit and DWARF for Hybrid Tracking Applications

• evaluation of different tracking methods
• comparing raw data formats
     – trying to find a common representation
     – semi-structured data (???)                                  Application




     – providing QoS information
• calibrating against each other                                   Integration




• predictive tracking
                                                       Tracker A   Tracker B     Tracker C

Evaluating the Usability of Hybrid Tracking Applications

• usability Engineering and Augmented Reality (focus
  on Hybrid Tracking)
• develop UI for a Hybrid Tracking Application
• develop unique interface to get aggregate tracking
  information
     – How to specify that a certain tracking-quality is
       needed in order to perform a specific task                   Application




       (QoS for Hybrid Tracking??)
                                                                    Integration




• UI - evalution methods

Application Scenarios
• dynamic switching of GPS-based outdoor
  tracking to vision-based indoor tracking
• motion capturing (HITLAB already did it)
     – dynamic rendering
• collaboration scenarios
