Software Campus: Haptic User Interfaces for Complex Visualizations (VibrAid)

When visualizing big data streams, overwhelming the user with a large amount of information can quickly become an issue. This psychological phenomenon is called Information Overload and is usually caused by badly designed user interfaces, especially when too much information is shown on the screen at the same time. The key for overcoming these problems more…

SmartAQnet

Overview image of project "SmarAQnet"

Air quality and the associated subjective and health-related quality of life are among the important topics of our time. However, it is very difficult for many cities to take measures that to accommodate today’s needs concerning e.g. mobility, housing and work, because a consistent data base with fine-granular data and information on causal chains is more…

Software Campus: Augmented Reality for in-situ Process Visualization (ARVis)

Software Campus: Augmented Reality for in-situ Process Visualization (ARVis) The increasing complexity of processes leads to an enormous amount of data which needs to be processed and understood by people. This is true for a great variability of processes, such as a production process in a factory or a more abstract procedure settled in an more…

Optimization of product quality at OSRAM Schwabmünchen

Optimization of product quality at OSRAM Schwabmünchen An important goal in the implementation of an industry 4.0 strategy is the optimization of production to further increase the quality of the produced product. This also depends on the optimal setting of many production parameters, the early detection of possible deviations and their elimination. The aim of more…

RüttelFlug

RüttelFlug is a sensory augmentation wearable for paragliders. The intelligent wristband measures vertical speed of the pilot and converts it into intuitively differentiable vibration patterns. As tactile perception is used for information transmission, the pilot can use his other senses, such as the eyes and ears, for experiencing flying. The key to flying more…

Requirement analysis for energetic construction measures based on historical infrastructure data

Over several years, the KIT-FM (Facility Management) has collected data with immense value for the operational management, but also for the planning and implementation of future infrastructure developments. This data has been collected in a widely closed real system and is available for nearly all buildings on the Campus North (former research center) containing a more…

Software Campus: KEESmartHome – Comfort-Efficiency-Equilibrium in a Smart Home

Lowering the energy consumption has become a prime goal for most, if not all, system developers and engineers working nowadays in building smart environments, consorting that way with the today’s world’s climate and energy policy. A smart environment like a smart home should therefore be able to provide energy efficient solutions and services. This should more…

SDI-X: Smart Data Innovation processes, tools and operational concepts

The BMBF-funded project Smart Data Innovation processes, tools and operational concepts (SDI-X) researches appropriate tools and best practices to not only facilitate extensive data analysis projects between different research and industry partners, but also enable their prompt implementation. The project is one of the publicly-funded pillars that support the operation of the SDIL and as more…
