Master theses started

Two students have started their Master theses in the GeoGazeLab:

Aikaterini Tsampazi, a Master student in Geomatics, will use eye tracking to measure the visual behavior of wayfinders in a virtual environment in her Master thesis titled “Pedestrian Navigation: The use of navigation aids under time pressure in virtual urban environments”. The goal will be to investigate how pedestrian wayfinders behave under time pressure.

Yufan Miao, a Master student in Computational Science from Uppsala University, is visiting our group in spring and summer 2015. He will be working on his Master thesis on “Landmark detection for mobile eye tracking”, co-supervised by our group and the Chair of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (Prof. Schindler). The goal is to apply image processing techniques to outdoor eye tracking videos for the automatic computation of the object of regard.
