Fotis Liarokapis is an Associate Professor and the director of the HCI Laboratory at Masaryk University, Faculty of Informatics at Brno, Czech Republic. Prof. Fotis Liarokapis has contributed to more than 120 refereed publications with more than 3288 citations (h-index: 28 and i10-index: 57) and his research interests include: virtual reality, augmented reality, human machine interaction, brain computer interfaces and serious games.
I am focusing on augmented reality, virtual reality, crowd modeling as well as brain computer interfaces. For augmented reality, I am developing an outdoor platform that uses computer vision algorithms to detect position and orientation for mobile devices. This technology is piloted for cultural heritage at the city centre of Brno. Also, for the iMareCulture Horizon 2020 project, I am developing an underwater AR hybrid system (using ultra sound and computer vision). In terms of virtual reality, I am working with HMDs, stereoscopic projection (using polarized glasses) and motion tracking. This technology is currently applied in three projects, one in geo-visualisation, one in TSST (Trier social stress test) and another one on moral dilemmas. As far as the brain computer interfaces are concerned I am currently working motor imagery to interact with games and virtual reality applications.
