2216 M/P/I/RI Augmented Reality (AR) Game for Stereopsis Training. The stereopsis training method already exists in Virtual Reality (VR) and can be used as a basis for a new implementation in AR. The aim is to create a context-aware game that motivates users to do the training more frequently. AR, HCI Wolfgang Mehringer (M. Sc.)
2217 M/P/I/RI Perception Reaction Time Analysis in Directed Movements while Playing Tennis in Virtual Reality (VR). The aim is to decompose the total reaction time of a player into the perception time and the movement time. The total reaction time is the span between the presentation of a stimulus (ball gets visible) and a successful hit by the player. During perception the player’s movement is undirected. After perceiving the ball and movement planning the movement gets directed. This behavior will be investigated in this thesis. VR, HCI Wolfgang Mehringer (M. Sc.)
2218 M/P/I/RI (Re-)Eye-dentification: Eye behavior for identifying individuals. The aim is to create a classification that identifies users based on their eye behavior (pupil diameter, blinking, …). This enables an interesting log-in interaction for Extended Reality (XR) devices. XR, Eye-Tracking, HCI Wolfgang Mehringer (M. Sc.)
