3D Multi-Touch Master Thesis

March 15, 2012

Due to the overwhelming response from the research community over the past 2 years I decided to put online my Master Thesis written at Fraunhofer FIT. I hope my experience will help at least a few researchers and enthusiasts to move forward with their approaches and technologies. Overall, this is my contribution to improving human-computer interaction towards a more ergonomic, inuitive and fun experience.

The thesis documents two approaches I have tried to implement computer vision based 3D hand gesture interaction. The more promising approach is selected to implement a first prototype for evaluation with users. Finally, the findings are summarized and future work is listed.

MaCon YouTube Video

In the last days, I prepared a YouTube video demonstrating MaCon: A tool for consistent cross-discipline conception of manufacturing systems. The video explains the MaCon user interface and shows advanced features such as scenario-based testing and test report generation. The tool represents an integral part of my dissertation work at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen.

How to Scale Refrigerator Powering Strategies

When it comes to an array of heterogeneous refrigerators, control optimization becomes a real challenge. In this article I demonstrate how a possible strategy could look like for an array of 20 refrigerators. Solar power is provided in form of a Gaussian with mean 1pm and covariance of 7 hours.

Animated Article Tiles

In my previous posts Blog Calender Interface and Blog Timeline Widget I demonstrated how to use the time information to build navigation controls for blogs. In this article again I deal with blog navigation, however this time I exploit the images contained in the blog articles for building a tiled navigation interface.
