Energy Efficient 360 Video Processing for Portable VR-Technologies

This project focuses on the energy consumption of modern virtual reality applications. The target devices are virtual-reality-glasses that can be worn on the head and that simulate a virtual 3D environment to users. Most modern devices are still rather heavy, uncomfortable to wear, and attached to a powerline such that the user experience can still be enhanced. In this project, the goal is to make the glasses require less power and energy during operation such that the operating time and battery requirements can be minimized. For the partner organization, being able to provide such a solution to users would be a unique selling point for their products as the glasses can be made lighter, more comfortable, and do not need a power cable.
