Professorship of Ergonomics and Innovation Management
Research on human-technology interaction with a focus on 3D interaction and virtual technologies.
The professorship with its 35 scientific staff has been conducting research at the interface between humans and technology for more than 20 years. The research work is oriented towards the user cendered design process with a focus on evaluation research. In more than 15 multi-year research projects on the development of new XR technologies and their use in industrial as well as work and life environments, questions regarding acceptance, usability, perception of presence and other factor-human-related criteria have been investigated.
Professorship of Production Systems and Processes
Research and development of virtual technologies in the field of virtual, augmented and mixed reality.
For more than 20 years, the professorship and its more than 50 scientific staff have been conducting research on virtual technologies. Starting with projective VR, the researchers are now mainly concerned with mobile XR technology, with a focus on VR/AR visualization and related 3D model generation and conversion, integration with different capture systems and their connection to external systems and data sources, motion capturing and the integration of stand-alone solutions, as well as VR/AR interaction and navigation methods and user interfaces.
