Multimedia, Simulation, Virtual Reality Group (Prof. Andreas Weber)

The Multimedia, Simulation and Virtual Reality Group is headed by Prof. Dr. Andreas Weber

We offer introductionary courses on computer animation and physics-based modeling, covering the basic principles, as well as advanced courses and seminars in which the current state of the art is presented, especially in the areas of motion synthesis of avatars and physics-based simulation. In all courses, we do not only teach the theoretical principles but also put emphasis on the practical application by implementing many of the discussed algorithms in the accompanying exercises. Additional practical experience can be gained in our lab courses. Details on current lectures, lab courses and seminars can be found on the teaching page.

In our research, we concentrate on the areas of Analysis and Synthesis of Human Motion Data and Hair Modeling. Building on our basic research activities, we also pursue a variety of applied research projects in close cooperation with several industrial partners. Stundents are strongly motivated to participtate in our resarch  either as student research assistant even in an early stage of their studies or during their Bachelor-, Master- or Diplomathesis.  An overview of  our research interests is given on the activities page. A full list of our projects can be found on the projects page.
