Thesis: Co-located Synchronous Collaboration Visualizations

Monday, 07 December 2015 13:21

Together with the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Campus Hagenberg, Prof. Jetter we offer a bachelor thesis with focus on co-located synchronous collaboration by using, e.g., Tablets, Tabletops…

Since it is an ongoing collaboration with Prof. Jetter and the development of approaches and evaluation studies is also considered, it is also possible to find other topics for a master thesis or bachelor thesis.

For further information look through our Open Topics section.

New Bachelor Thesis Topic: Citizen Sensing with the Mobile Phone

Saturday, 22 August 2015 19:03

New Bachelor thesis topic available: “People's Pulse: Mobile Health App for Citizen-Sensing Physiological Data"

Skills required or to be accomplished in the course of the thesis: mobile app development (Android and/or iOs and/or HTML5/CSS), very good sense of interaction design and visualisations.

Description: We are looking for a motivated student to design and implement a mobile application for tracking health related data (mostly heart rate). The topic should be interesting, because it is in cooperation with the Biomedical Sensors group, and the main idea is to evaluate health related parameters using the app store. That is, we want to use the mobile phone as an instrument for sampling participants on a large scale (citizen sensing).

If you are interested and want to learn more about the project or have any other questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch - Looking forward to your message.
