|Microsoft Academic Profile:||Holger Kenn|
From October 1st, 2007 to January 2014, I worked at Microsoft Advanced Technology Labs Europe (formerly known as Microsoft EMIC) in Aachen, Germany. In the meantime, the lab has moved to Munich.
My research topic was next-generation devices and system software, including mobile and wearable devices.
The Wearable Computing group works on various theoretical and applied research topics in wearable computing, among others wearable user interfaces, social networks, context detection and reasoning, human-human and human-machine cooperation.
With the wearable computing group, I worked on a portable user interface framework for mobile and wearable devices. It defines the user interfaces in an abstract and device-independent way, therefore allowing device-specific and context-specific adaptation of the interface. This is an outcome of the WearIT@Work EU Project .
With Stephane Beauregard and Burcu Cinaz, I worked on various approaches for context recognition for wearables, including the so-called HeadSLAM mechanism for LiDAR-based simultaneous localization and mapping for pedestrians using a head-mounted LiDAR and IMU.
At the moment, I am not teaching
In the past, I was supervising a number of Diploma, Bachelor and Master Theses at Uni Bremen.
Other course material of my previous courses at both the CS department of the Bremen University and at the Jacobs University (formerly called International University Bremen) can be found here.
