Head of Mixed & Augmented Reality, Fraunhofer FIT
Leif Oppermann is head of the Mixed and Augmented Reality Solutions group at Fraunhofer FIT in Sankt Augustin, which is a part of the Cooperation Systems research department. Prior to joining FIT, he was a research fellow at the Mixed Reality Lab of the University of Nottingham, UK, where he worked on pervasive gaming projects and also earned his PhD with a thesis about “Facilitating the Development of Location-Based Experiences”. Leif has a background in real-time graphics programming and finished his Mediainformatics studies in Wernigerode with a work on Augmented Reality. His main research interest is in location-based experiences, mobile HCI, web-based collaboration, and applying it all to the workplace.
This talk reports on key findings from this study, e.g. how the applications were perceived by users as a fit for the particular devices. Finally, we also report on a new project about automated space measurement for buildings where no BIM data is available, and how to combine that with material recognition and AR views.
