Tracking hand movements has numerous applications, including „Virtual Reality“ and „Human-Computer Interaction,“ but especially in the field of medicine. For instance, in rheumatology, the objective assessment and quantification of hand function play a crucial role. The research of sub-project A01 aims to provide a novel, contactless sensor system for this purpose. It will merge data from an imaging radar and a depth camera to leverage the benefits of both sensors. Visitors of the LNOS learned about the respective advantages and the challenges associated with sensor fusion in the exciting live demo.
