Graduate and Postgraduate Projects

We supervise bachelor and master theses’ final year projects – or supervise your just for fun work. Here is a selection of interesting topics, but do not hesitate to approach us if you have your own ideas.

  • Classroom Management with AR: distribute students in the classroom so that they can have the optimum experience in shared experiences with small groups of 4-5 students. Load room, identify available space, partition, and plan position/orientation for the users, while avoiding obstacles dynamically and preventing students from stepping into each others holograms.
  • Collaborative AR: Hologram sharing on multiple smart glasses: AR on smart glasses is typically a one person experience. In this project, we would assemble a spectator view that allows to hook up one hololens (or other) with a second one to allow live streaming AR experiences in high definition from a 3rd person perspective to a video projector and other smart glasses.
  • Animation and Motion Rigging
  • Motion Controllers: develop your own interaction device for AR using Arduino and IMUs.
  • Optical Face/Body-posture Recognition
  • Natural language understanding for Holograms: Fit our animated holograms with natural language understanding using Microsoft’s LUIS or IBM’s Watson.
  • Spatial Poetry: The writer Bob Brown, optical poet and ‘grandfather of the e-book’, invented a ‘reading machine’ back in 1929, a prototype for an electronic reading device. We want to make Brown’s vision come alive – of disrupting the tension of linearity of text and multidimensionality of space. This project would use the environmental mapping engine of the Microsoft Hololens to place text into space, making holographic words run up walls and react to the physicality of its surrounding.
  • Hologram Repository:Abstraction layer for a common query interface for querying and retrieving data from 3D repositories plus reference implementation on Microsoft Hololens or similar smart glasses.
  • Augmented Assessments: Build the equivalent of a 3D multiple choice questionnaire using the Microsoft HoloLens: users have to decide between correct and incorrect situations / objects.
  • Projection mapping: Realtime projection on moving objects. With realtime 3D scanning, new applications in AR become possible: it is possible to map projection content onto moving objects. In this project, a proof of concept of such projection mapping is developed.
