Group work starting next week
we finally received the go for our group work phase in the DFKI building starting from next week Wednesday, 8th of July 2020. Unexpectedly we even received the ok to have the whole groups working in one room, which means that you will be able to work at DFKI with the hardware all together. The crisis management granted us a meeting room (Turing 1) which we have booked from next week until the first of October. The plan is that you will work there in groups and that we also have the final presentation/demo in this room.
The plan for the next week is, that we will prepare this room for you on Monday and Tuesday so that you have all the hardware setup you need in this room including a PC, EEG-Headsets and VR-headsets. The PC should have all necessary software environments and libraries needed and all hardware installed already. On your first day you will receive a short safety instruction concerning Corona rules and an introduction by one of our colleagues Tobias about how to use the EEG-Headset, how to record data, start and stop measurements etc. as well as an introduction to the Unity scene for those of you who are using it.
The preliminary schedule looks as follows:
Wednesday 8th of July, 10 am - 5 pm: MI Group
Thursday 9th of July, 10 am - 5 pm: Automated Training Group
Friday 10th of July, 10 am - 5 pm: Visual Stress Group
The week after on Monday will be reserved for MI Group again, Tuesday Automate Training Group, Wednesday Visual Stress Group and so on until Oktober.
Please note that those dates, beside the first 3 where you will receive introduction to the hardware and the general safety rules, are not mandatory appointments. If you do not want to or are not able to be at DFKI for that one day just inform me or your tutor about it. Please do so, as for safety regulations I was asked to open the door for you each and every day at the DFKI Vis-Center entrance, right in front of the Mensa. The reason for choosing this entrance is, that it is the shortest path through the DFKI building to the meeting room.
Those and other safety measures and checklists will be send to you via mail today. Please read those documents carefully as those rules currently apply for everybody working in the building and I was asked to get a signature of all of you on the first meeting in the building that you have read those regulations and confirm to follow those rules carefully.
If there should be any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me, otherwise have a nice weekend everybody and see you according to the dates mentioned above next week.
Don't forget to bring a mask!
