Mobile Bridge

Mobile BridgeThe Mobile Ship Bridge is a configurable ship’s bridge system in which new eNavigation technologies can be tested and demonstrated. In particular new interaction concepts are within the focus of the development. This includes both, the providing of information to nautical personal as well as new control concepts. The portable structure of the system allows a straightforward demonstration of these concepts in a real system environment, e.g. on real ship bridges as the system can be connected to the sensors on board of the ship in parallel with the real systems. An additional vision system supports the design, development and demonstration of these interaction concepts within a virtual environment. » Construction Manual & Documentation

Virtual Handles

Virtual Handles This is an implementation of screen-based Virtual Handles and Information Displays for Ship Bridge Simulators. A Node.js server handles data exchange and delivers different views as HTML files accessable per name. We use Socket.IO for communication between views and the simulation. The folder client-examples includes code snippets in Java and Python, as well as a full example integration into the open source interactive 3D ship simulator BridgeCommand. » Source Code & Documentation

EyeMR

EyeMRMixed Reality devices can either augment reality (AR) or create completely virtual realities (VR). Combined with head-mounted devices and eye-tracking, they enable users to interact with these systems in novel ways. However, current eye-tracking systems are expensive and limited in the interaction with virtual content. In this project, we developed EyeMR, a low-cost system (below 100$) that enables researchers to rapidly prototype new techniques for eye and gaze interactions. Our system supports mono- and binocular tracking (using Pupil Capture) and includes a Unity framework to support the fast development of new interaction techniques. » Construction Manual & Documentation » Source Code
