Dr. Y. Huang (Yilin)
My research focuses on how to fully utilize data in Modeling and Simulation (M&S). The data used in M&S are often not at the level needed to construct and validate the simulation models. Hence, understanding and bridging the gap could not only contribute to formalizing the transformation process from data to valid models but also offers a possibility to automate the process. The research could have a wide range of application areas. The application domain of the current case study is public rail transportation.
Dr. M. Cidota (Marina)
My research focuses on designing for engagement and awareness in a collaborative system, using different interaction techniques and establishing virtual co-location in merging realities. Possible applications can be found in the security domain, in medicine and in certain training contexts. In the current project, Augmented Reality novel technologies, Serious Gaming and marker-less tracking of human body are combined to develop unobtrusive, cost-effective and patient-friendly methods for objective assessment of upper extremity motor dysfunction.
