Humber Faculty Dennis Kappen and George Paravantes, in collaboration with two media studies students, Dhanuska Premarantha, Chloe Chung, and SAT student Hilary Leehane, has had their demo paper accepted into Automotive UI 2018.
This annual conference - now in its 10th year - is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications.
The paper proposes a demo for an augmented reality application for training emergency responders, which would use an AR projection on a pre-recorded emergency scenario. The team is currently seeking funding for the registration costs of the conference, as well as funds to build a prototype of the proposed design.
The conference will take place on September 23-25. Best of luck to the faculty and students!
