The co-inventors on the associated pending US patent application are Prof. Gerd Bruder, Zubin Choudhary, Dr. Kangsoo Kim, and Dr. Greg Welch.
Excerpts from UCF News:
“The Scroll and Quill Society celebrates faculty members who for at least a decade have made scholarly contributions of impact to advance knowledge in their fields, benefit society and distinguish UCF at national or international levels.”
“Gregory Welch, professor, nursing, College of Nursing
Gregory Welch is the AdventHealth Endowed Chair in Healthcare Simulation and a Pegasus Professor who has acquired nearly $9.6 million in active sponsored research. With a background in computer science, his research entails virtual and augmented reality, human-computer interaction, human motion tracking and human surrogates for training and practice, with a focus on applications such as healthcare and defense. Welch’s work has led to groundbreaking patient simulators for training healthcare practitioners.”
Congratulations to our three wonderful REU students who worked with us over the summer! Their work on AR interfaces for controlling IoT devices has been accepted to ACM SUI 2021.
With the help of the entire SREAL team, Zubin Choudhary’s doctoral consortium submission was accepted at IEEE ISMAR 2021!
