DGMD S-14 Wearable Devices and Computer Vision
In this course we introduce the basic concepts of embedded systems programming, wearable devices, interfaces with motion and environmental sensors via Bluetooth, and integration of computer vision algorithms for augmented reality (AR) in wearable devices via video and pictures. Applications are in the field of augmented reality systems including wearable devices such as helmets, contacts, headsets, and AR glasses. This course covers the theoretical background of the concepts used and provides step by step tutorials for hands-on learning, where students gain confidence developing reference designs which give them ideas of how to propose their own ideas and projects. We cover an introduction to image processing and computer vision and computer vision architectures based on convolutional neural networks, and object detection image segmentation and synthesis.
