What it relevant for the exam?

The exam will cover the content discussed in the lecture. That means the following topics are relevant:

  • Microcontrollers and Basic Electronics
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Context and Positioning
  • Wearable Computing
  • Touch
  • Digital Fabrication
  • Robotics

 

What it NOT relevant for the exam?

  • There will be no questions about the Electronic Textiles lecture (Week 5: 05-p2-Wearable Computing).
  • There will be no questions about Unity3D.

 

Exam preparation:

  • We have uploaded a practice exam to CMS (materials section). This should help you to prepare for the exam. Notice, that this is a shorter version of an exam. Usually, there will be at least one exercise per topic. 
  • Prof. Krüger will go through the practice exam during his Live Rehearsal & Questions lecture on June 30th. Afterwards, you can ask lecture specific questions.
  • We have also reserved three tutorials, where you can ask questions about lecture topics (or you can still seek advise for your project).
  • In addition, we may also offer an office-hour in case you find this helpful.

 

 

Best of luck for the upcoming weeks!

Dear students,

We just approved the concept reports. You should be able to see it in CMS. We were genuinely surprised about the different solutions you came-up with, and we saw some very creative things in the bonus points sections – well done! We are looking forward to seeing these solutions implemented.

Once again, if you have any questions about the exercise/lecture or your project, please come to the tutorials and ask your tutor. You can also reach out via e-mail or on Discord. We are more than happy to help.

This week marks the final lecture week. That means, from now on you can work on your project full time. In the next couple of weeks, we will also provide more details regarding the final exam, and how to prepare for it. In addition, we may offer an office-hour specifically for questions about the exam/lecture (in case you find this helpful) besides the regular tutorials.

Dear Students,

this week we have the concept presentations and submissions:

 

1)     Please prepare a 2min talk (e.g., slides, concept sketch, ...) that you present as a group in your tutorial this week. You can decide to present it together or only one person represents the team. That is up to you.

2)     The presentation is mandatory, but not grated!

3)     Briefly explain what you want to implement (not details – stick to the 2mins!).

4)     Based on the feedback you receive (from your tutor and other students in your tutorial) you can revise your concept document before submitting it (Deadline: May 30th).  

 

We do this to make this course more interactive and furthermore, to help you getting started early on. Further, this will ensure that your project goals are not too ambitious. We will check the concept documents and provide feedback on your execution plan.

 

All upcoming project work will be executed/presented and submitted as a group! One submission per group in CMS.

Dear students,

based on your feedback and many questions we received, we decided to slightly modify the hardware rental program.

 

Students who are eligible (no changes):

Only students from the following subjects are (by default) eligible for the hardware rental:

1) Media informatics (B.Sc.) since it is a mandatory (core) lecture for them.

2) BSc/MSc Computer Science (Advanced Lecture)

3) MSc Embedded Systems (Advanced Lecture)

4) MSc Entrep. Cypersecurity (Advanced Lecture)

5) Media informatics (M.Sc.). If you have not taken it as part of your B.Sc. (either because you have been at another university, or you were enrolled in a B.Sc. program other than Media Informatics). (Advanced Lecture)

 

If you want to rent the hardware, and you belong to one of the above-mentioned subjects, it is required that you submit the rental agreement until April 30th.

 

Students who are not eligible (updates):

There is a chance that we have some hardware kits left over. We will distribute them to the remaining students on a random basis.

If you want to sign-up for this, please submit the rental agreement to the “Waiting List” submission category in CMS until April 30th. On May 1st, we will inform you about whether we have a spare kit for you.

Please be aware that you are not guaranteed a hardware kit, and in case you still need to purchase it afterwards, you will most likely get the hardware too late for ex. 2 and the “Introduction to Arduino” course. Therefore, we recommend buying one yourselves or at least having one kit per project team, so that you can follow along. 

 

 

We apologize for any inconvenience caused, but we were honestly surprised by the number of students who registered for the course. That being said, we are very happy that so many people are interested in the topic, and we’ll try to support you in any way possible.

Best,

Your Interactive Systems Team

Dear students,

we assigned you to the different tutorial slots. We tried our best to avoid conflicts; however, please check whether the date/time works for you. In case there is something wrong, please get in touch with your respective tutor.

  1. You can now also register your project team in CMS. If you have difficulties finding a project partner, check out the discord server. Registration due May 3rd.
  2. Students who want to rent the course hardware from us can now download and submit the rental agreement in CMS (due April 30th). Please verify if you are eligible for the hardware rental i.e., the lecture is either mandatory or counts as an advanced lecture for you (see Kick-off slides). In doubt? – Please see your curriculum or talk to your examination office. In case you can use this lecture as free credits, we unfortunately cannot provide the course hardware. Thus, do not submit the agreement.

Important: Later in the semester, a few weeks before the exam, you have to register for the exam on HISPOS. The registration must be made no later than one week before the exam.

 

Note on transfer of credit from previous semesters:

  • “I have successfully completed the exercises and projects of IAS in summer term 20, but have not passed the final exam. Can I just write the exam?”
    Yes you can transfer your exercises and projects from IAS in summer term 20 to IAS in summer term 21, so you do not have to hand in exercises and project assignments a second time. 
  • You cannot transfer partial grades from previous IAS lectures.

 

Description

This course introduces technical concepts, software paradigms and hardware technologies of modern interactive systems. Their application is illustrated using seminal and recent examples from graphical user interfaces, mobile interfaces, ubiquitous computing (internet of things), augmented reality, and physical interfaces.

Technologies:

  • Window systems
  • Device technology, basic electronics, microcontrollers
  • Sensors, displays, and actuators
  • Touch input
  • Capturing physical context
  • Physical prototyping and digital fabrication

 

Applications in:

  • Graphical user interfaces
  • Mobile interfaces
  • Ubiquitous computing (Internet of Things)
  • Tangible interfaces
  • Augmented and virtual reality
  • Wearable and embodied interfaces
