Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • design an experiment involving human subjects
  • conduct an VR experiment involving human subjects
  • analyse the data collected in the experiment adequately
  • disseminate the results in a scientific manner.

Subject of course

Students will design, conduct, analyse and disseminate a human subject experiment conducted in Virtual Reality involving a research question from the area of mobile navigation systems. Each student sitting the class must test at least 3 participants.

Important note: A safety and hygiene concept will apply for conducting the experiments. Based on the current COVID-19 regulations conducting the experiment on the premises of the Geoinformation may not be mandatory.

Teaching methods

e.g.  literature review, group discussions, oral presentations, self-regulated learning through project work

Mode of examination


Additional information

The lab sessions will be held in presence. Upon prior notice, individual sessions can be held in distance learning mode if required by the circumstances.
