Digital capture of human bodies is a rapidly growing research area in computer vision and computer graphics that puts scenarios such as life-like mixed-reality (MR) virtual-social interactions into reach. Therefore, we offer projects for modeling and capturing humans at the intersection of computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning.

Stable walking is one of the most fundamental dynamic movements to ensure the quality of lifestyle. However, the functionality of these systems deteriorates as people age, leading to a higher risk of falling. Fall-related injuries such as hip fracture, traumatic brain, and upper limb worsen the quality of lifestyle and put immense pressure on personal and social levels (1% of total annual healthcare expenditure; 25billion euros in Europe).
Diagnostic tools to monitor movement deficits and abnormal motor patterns reliably and objectively during daily activities outside of clinical settings are mostly missing. Hence, the interpretation of data is limited. The advanced development of inertial measurement units (IMU) provided an alternative measuring paradigm. However, the characteristic of IMU causes drift in the system, which gets accumulated during calculation, thus giving wrong results. This study aims to develop a robust drift-compensation algorithm to derive spatial gait parameters.
