TDT16 - Extended Reality

Målgruppe: Studenter

Teacher: Gabriel Hanssen Kiss (gabriel.kiss@ntnu.no), together with Frank Lindseth and Theoharis Theoharis

The course is given in English.

The format of the course is a series of sessions for each of the topics

Contact the teacher if you want additional information

Workload: 3,75 SP

Start-up: first week of September (exact dates to be defined)

Learning outcomes:

The main learning outcomes of the module:

1) Introduction to extended reality (XR): main building blocks and possible approaches   

2) In depth look at VR/AR/MR related methods (XR space, position orientation and tracking, augmentation) and hardware (visualization devices, navigation and interaction devices)

3) Tools for creating XR content (Hardware and Software / Frameworks)

4) Applications of XR: medical, architecture, gaming, education, simulation tools, data augmentation for AI, Digital Twins and Smart Cities


The literature consists of several articles from books, journals, conference proceedings and tutorials / Videos.

Teaching approach

The course is given through workshops where the students present the content followed by discussions. Regular meetings every second week are planned.
