Vortrag von Antonio Krüger, Saarland University (DFKI)

Am 14. Januar wird Antonio Krüger einen Vortrag mit dem Titel: Dynamic Passive Haptic Interaction in Virtual Reality um 16:15 in der Rotunde, Cartesium halten.

Title: Dynamic Passive Haptic Interaction in Virtual Reality


In this talk I will present the concept of DPHI for VR. DPHI combines
elements of shape changing devices and VR-controller to allow for more
sophisticated and realistic interactions in Virtual Environments.
Besides the general concept I will discuss two types of controller
that allow for dynamic adjustment of passive proxy properties. One
device that simulates weight and one device that utilizes air drag to
provide counter forces while interacting. I will furthermore discuss
how passive hairlike structure help to simulate different haptic
sensations and how hand redirection can increase the flexibility of
interaction in VR.

Antonio Krüger is chairman of executive board of the German Research
Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) (since 2019). He is the
scientific director of the department „Cognitive Assistants“ of DFKI
and a full professor for Computer Science at Saarland University
(since 2009) and an internationally renowned expert on
Man-Machine-Interaction and Artificial Intelligence. In 2010 he has
established the Mediainformatics study programme at the Saarland
University and directs it to this day. Antonio is a co-founder of the
Saarbrücken-based technology company Eyeled GmbH, which focuses on the
development of mobile and ubiquitous information systems. Many of his
research findings have found their way into applications in retail and
other industrial domains. From 2004 to 2009 he was a professor of
computer science and geoinformatics at the University of Münster and
acted as the managing director of the institute for geoinformatics. He
studied Computer Science and Economics at Saarland University and
finished his Ph.D in 1999  as a member of the Saarbrücken graduate
school of „Cognitive Science“. Antonio  has published more than 200
scientific articles and papers in internationally recognized  journals
and conferences and is member of several steering committees,
editorial boards and scientific advisory committees.
