Finished ThesesThis list is just a small selection of all the theses that were performed over the years in the CGVR lab.
The aim of this thesis was to explore graphical representations for visualising software in virtual reality.
The main goal of this study was to find out whether users are able to notice Redirected Walking manipulations in Virtual Reality (VR) by changing their position in VR when these manipulations occur during eye blinking.
This thesis deals with the creation and investigation of an new approach for tracking general objects. It combines data of multiple sensors by clustering results of weak classifiers to classify the input data.
The goal of this thesis was to realistically render two-sided refraction in real time.
Today, breast cancer is the highest frequent diagnosed cancer and the most common cause of death among women. The early detection of cancer tumors via the screening programs is the essential policy to increase survival rates. Malignant cancer tumor, in its developed stage, can attack the surrounding cells and metastasis to distant body parts. Metastasis is the main cause of death in patients. In order to prevent that, the malignant cancer tumor has to be detected and treated in its early stage.
Virtual Coral Reef: A Framework for the Procedural Growth of Corals based on L-Systems, Metaballs and Marching Cubes Algorithm
In cooperation with the Leibniz Center of Tropical Marine Ecology this master thesis aimed to represent the growth of a coral reef in which every coral is an individuum.
The thesis focuses on anaylsing and presenting vehicle data in a virtual scenario in near real time.
With the introduction of a new head-mounted displays models on the consumer market, the interest to those devices raised dramatically in the recent past. Although only a few wireless head-mounted display models are available today, there is a certain range of Vitrual- and Augmented Reality applications where those are needed. Existing solutions that allow using conventional HMDs for such applications wirelessly are either very expensive or too cumbersome.
This thesis is aimed to overcome those drawbacks with a new solution of a distributed design. Wired HMD is being connected to a compact, low-cost, portable computer that displays a real-time compressed video stream, transferred from a computer performing the actual rendering of an HMD-enabled application.
A Time-Based Adaptive Hybrid Sorting Algorithm on CPU and GPU with Application to Collision Detection
This thesis created a novel adaptive sorting algorithm that runs on CPU as well as GPU. It utilizes advantages from different underlying previously existing algorithms.
A study focuses on creating an interactive data visualization based on product safety annual reports between 2005 to 2013 in Europe.
Sharing Experiences Using a Head Mounted Display.
An automated tool for the testing of design requirements of iOS applications
