Tamara von Sawitzky, M.Sc.

    Tamara is an XR researcher at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI). She obtained her bachelor’s degree in the study program “Mechatronics” in 2016 and her master’s degree in the study program “Applied Research in Engineering Sciences” in 2018, both at THI. Her bachelor’s thesis is about the development of an intuitive usage concept for assistant robots using augmented reality (AR) and gesture control. In her master’s thesis, she investigated the impact of indicating vehicles’ routes on an extended Head-Up Display (HUD) on trust in SAE level 5 vehicle automation.

    Her current research is addressing the usage of HUDs in the context of cyclists’ safety. The primary objective of her work is to find ways to increase the cyclists’ situational awareness in traffic and thus, decrease traffic accidents involving cyclists. To test potential safety indications, she is developing a tool that allows for simulation in VR and MR, and realistic testing. With this tool, she is then investigating the usability, feasibility, and advantages of virtual reality-, and mixed reality-supported prototyping approaches in the development phase of informative safety functions for cyclists on a HUD prototype.
