- Mobile navigation of large information spaces
- Motion gesture recognition
- Physical and tangible user interfaces
Sven Kratz is a research assistant with Deutsche Telekom Laboratories at TU Berlin, where he is also currently pursuing his Phd studies. His primary research focus is on sensor-based mobile interfaces that allow for novel types of interaction. This includes gesture recognition, interaction based on distance sensing and pressure, tabletop applications for mobile devices and optical tracking technologies. Sven also conducts research into mobile interfaces providing efficient navigation of large information spaces such as maps, 3D environments or databases.
Sven received his Diplom degree in Computer Science from RWTH-Aachen University in 2008. In 2007, while working at the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen, Sven participated in the development, deployment and the user interface design of the mobile pervasive city game REXplorer, the first mobile city game released in public.
During his free time, Sven enjoys sailing, playing tennis and traveling the world.
