Die Forschungsgruppe Kognitive Systeme der Hochschule Reutlingen entwickelt Anwendungen, basierend auf Computer-Vision, Machine-Learning und Computer-Graphics in Kombination mit Methoden für die Modellierung von menschlichen Kognitionsprozessen. Dabei ermöglichen realistische Simulationen im Labor und Echtzeit-Daten aus neuster Technik komplexe Experimente, die die Grundlage bilden um die Mensch-Maschinen Interaktion zu optimieren.

Equipment Used

Vicon Vantage

Vantage is Vicon’s flagship range of cameras. The sensors have resolutions of 5, 8 and 16 megapixels, with sample rates up to 2000Hz – this allows you to capture fast movements with very high accuracy. The cameras also have built-in temperature and bump sensors, as well as a clear display, to warn you if cameras have moved physically or due to thermal expansion. High-powered LEDs and sunlight filters mean that the Vantage is also the best choice for outdoor use and large volumes.

Vicon Shōgun Software

Shogun has been designed for the requirements and workflow of VFX/Entertainment users. The focus is to save time, and this is achieved by doing as much in real time as possible. To this end, Shogun introduces unique features such as real time actor calibration, automatic recovery of bumped cameras and unbreakable solving – the latter enables you to get a good skeletal solve even when a high proportion of markers is occluded, which again minimizes clean-up time afterwards.

Ergoneers Dikablis Glasses

The Dikablis Eye Tracking Glasses combine monocular and binocular eye tracking with high measuring accuracy and standardized parameter calculation – even for people wearing glasses. As a result, they offer the ideal basis for studying human behavior in highly dynamic applications. Connect our head mounted eye tracker to the D-Lab measurement and analysis platform to capture and analyze gaze data in several ways.

MoCap 4.0 Projekt

Das MoCap 4.0 Projekt ist Teil des Lehr- und Forschungsbereichs Kognitive Systeme der Fakultät Informatik. Die Gruppe beschäftigt sich mit technischen Wahrnehmungsprozessen und deren Integration in Assistenzsysteme. Im Fokus stehen dabei auch Funktionen zur Erkennung von Fussgängern sowie die Vorhersage ihrer Bewegungsabsichten. MoCap 4.0 besteht aus einem hochgenauen optischen Trackingsystem zur Analyse von Körperbewegungen, mobilen Geräten zur Erfassung von  Blickverhalten sowie einem 3D-Scanner zur naturgetreuen Digitalisierung von menschlichen Körpern.
