This lab course covers mobile applications for smart devices, ranging from standalone applications, embedded systems including hardware and sensors to the design of modern interfaces for complex business applications. Students learn and apply software engineering and usability engineering techniques. This includes object-oriented modeling and system design as well as the realization of graphical user interfaces, usability testing, continuous integration and continuous delivery. Real industrial partners provided the problem statements and acted as clients. 10 industry partners participated in the iPraktikum SS18/19, each with a different problem statement and its own team. More than 100 students delivered these applications using agile techniques and communicating continuously to their clients.

The chart shows the project based organization of the course. All projects are shown as columns including information about customer, project management and student team. A team of twelve student coaches dealt with the project management of the teams. Furthermore cross-project teams with one member of each team (horizontal bars) dealt with different aspects during the project. The release management team was in charge of the right usage of version control, continuous integration, continuous delivery and feedback management. The Merge Management team kept an eye on the right use of the git branching model and the incorporation of a pull request workflow. The modeling team was responsible for the modeling activities including the creation of informal models, i.e. trailer, mockups and UML diagrams to improve the communication of difficult aspects within the team.



Project: BR

The BR iOS application enables people to become a weather reporter themselves. This is possible by offering a platform on which they can report a lot of different weather attributes. The same application can be used to view the reported weather for a precise location. Some of the reports will be broadcasted to your favorite BR radio station.

Project: Capgemini

cARgemini is a smart incident support app for assembly line workers in the automotive industry. The app offers several tools to aid workers during the quality assurance process. With the help of Apple’s ARKit and CoreML, cARgemini lets an inspector scan car parts and automatically detect damages. The damages are classified, measured and annotated in augmented reality. After identifying the damage, the inspector is also able to attach additional information like a photo or a video. When done the inspector can forward all incidents and their location to a responsible mechanic capable of fixing it.

Project: CMU

The IW Control app empowers individuals to control IoT devices at CMU's Intelligent Workplace using Augmented Reality. Occupants can aim at a device with their smartphone camera and change its state with a tap on their screen. This way, one can manage a large number of devices intuitively. Moreover, energy reports can be analyzed within the app to raise awareness for energy consumption and identify opportunities to improve one's green footprint.

Project: Siemens

ViewGuide is an Augmented Reality app that aims to improve communication between field engineers and remote experts. The remote expert can not only see what the engineer sees but also guide him in his environment. It is based on Apple’s ARkit framework with WebRTC used for handling the peer to peer connection between users. Currently, supported features are AR drawing, the expert can leave annotations that stick to the environment, pose guidance, movements of the expert's device are translated and shown to the engineer, heatmap generation, annotations can be stored and reloaded, Apple Pencil support, gaze tracking and 3D reconstruction of the environment.

Project: Zeiss IMT

ZIMT allows metrologists, quality managers and production managers to share a view on a CAD model in augmented reality in real-time. You can have a car part displayed on your device as if it was really in front of you. If other people want to view the same part with you, you can invite them to a live AR session. The model can be rotated and viewed from all angles. The app runs on the iPhone as well as the head-mounted Microsoft HoloLens, so the user can keep their hands free while viewing the part.
