Audio AR-based Cognitive Reframing Exercises for Anxiety Management

The project "Audio AR-based Cognitive Reframing Exercises for Anxiety Management" aims to develop a self-administered, interactive Audio Augmented Reality (AAR) intervention for anxiety relief among 18-24-year-olds. Using guided Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) exercises, the AAR experience helps users reframe anxiety-inducing thoughts through a story-driven audio landscape. The intervention is designed to fit into daily routines with customizable participatory elements, and future iterations will involve user co-design for improved relevance. The research explores how embodied cognition (movement) and different modalities enhance the effectiveness of CBT for anxiety management.

Tracking and Visualization of Benchtop Assembly Components Using a Rgbd Camera

The project "Tracking and Visualization of Benchtop Assembly Components Using an RGBD Camera" aims to assist assembly line workers using a cost-effective system. Utilizing a Microsoft Kinect RGBD camera and Unity for visualization, the system tracks and visualizes components' positions and orientations. The Full Flow Bidirectional Fusion Network (FFB6D) estimates 6D poses from captured RGB and depth images. The system's accuracy was enhanced with Mahalanobis distance for post-processing. Future improvements include testing on more complex parts and optimizing the prediction model for better accuracy and frame rates.
