Thesis Topics

I offer thesis topics in the field of 3D User Interfaces for AR and VR and Ubiquitous Sports Technologies.

The main goal of a scientific Bachelor's or Master's thesis is to independently investigate a (constraint) research question with scientific rigour. So before approaching me for a thesis topic please make yourself familiar with the UTML information (including Thesis FAQ, BMS, Defense) and the general thesis regulations of the examination office! Open Topics see below.

[Ba/Ma] Investigating the Perception of Wearable Output for Real-time Feedback in Strength Training

Wearable sports devices like GPS watches and heart rate monitors are ubiquitous in sports like running or road cycling and enable the users to receive real-time performance feedback. Although fitness training is a trending sport, there are little to no consumer electronics available to appropriately support strength training during exercise.

In this thesis, we aim to investigate the acceptance and appropriateness of wearables in strength training on different body parts. In particular the thesis will study real-time feedback (e.g. vibro-tactile, audible, and visual cues) that guide the athlete during a set of selected strength training exercises.

  • Implement a system that is logs data relevant for fitness exercise tracking and provides different output channels.
  • Design and conduct a user study to collect a Corpus of Labeled Training Data.

[Ba/Ma] Investigating Gaze Bahavoir in Runners

The human visual system is important for gathering visually encoded information from the environment that helps in performing a task. The literature has shown that the current task and context influence the human gaze behavior when performing an activity. Recently, Matthis et al. (2018) presented a work about human “Gaze and the Control of Foot Placement When Walking in Natural Terrain”. They identified differences in the gait and gaze behavior for participants traversing terrains of different complexity.

The goals of your master thesis include:

  • Implement a recording system for gaze and gait signals using the FootStriker footwear, Pupil Labs mobile eye tracker, and other fitness sensors (HR, Footpod, etc.).
  • Design and conduct a user study extending the one presented in Matthis et al. (2018). You should be able to confirm their findings and add at least one additional factor which is likely to influence the gait and/or gaze behavior.

[Ba/Ma] Investigating the Effect of the Natural Environment on Running Behavoir in Trail Running

The human visual system is important for gathering visually encoded information from the environment that helps in performing a task. The literature has shown that the current task and context influence the human gaze behavior when performing an activity. Recently, Kim et al. (2017) presented a work about TrailSense. The thesis should build upon their findings and extend this work in particular for trail running.

The goals of your thesis include:

  • Implement a recording system for gaze and gait signals using the FootStriker footwear, Pupil Labs mobile eye tracker, and other fitness sensors (HR, Footpod, etc.).
  • Design and conduct a user study to collect a Corpus of Labeled Tracking Data from runs on varying terrain.
