Workgroup Prof. Kuhn


Laboratory courses are essential elements in science and engineering education. To provide students an easy access to complex physical processes in real laboratory experiments, gLabAssist will use data goggles - so-called SmartGlasses - and analyze their effectiveness. The aim is to achieve a fusion of physical reality and comprehensible digital processing of real-time measurement data and to significantly improve the learning effect of physical laboratory practices. In this sense, gLabAssist intends to investigate the potential use of the connection between experiment and its digital processing.
