The meeting of the "Südniedersachsenprogramm" ("Southern Lower Saxony Program") took place on the 9th of February 2017 in the city hall of Osterode. Human-Centered Information Systems (HCIS) was invited and presented its work. With a booth HCIS presented the project "Pflegebrille" ("Caring Spectacles") ( as well as the Ubiquitous Interaction Lab ( Additionally, Augmented Reality (AR) was explained and demonstrated. Lower Saxony Minister of Commercial Affairs Olaf Lies, members of the German parliament as well the parliament of Lower Saxony, the mayor of Osterode Klaus Becker, the State Secretary Birgit Honé and many others stopped by the HCIS booth and informed themselves about the innovative technology and its possible applications. In addition to the information concerning the projects and research findings, HCIS provided an interactive AR-Demo, with which people were able to interact cooperatively. 

The agenda of the meeting included talks, for example from Secretary Lies, as well as a "Project-Dating" session, in which the attendees could visit the different information booths, take a close look at the projects and receive explanations from the various projects. Minister Lies was one of the first ones to visit the HCIS booth. The project Pflegebrille was explained to him as well as the numerous possible applications of Augmented reality that are being tested and developed by HCIS.

Image: AR-glasses allow for integration of 3D-models into the real world. Users can cooperatively interact with these virtual objects. In this image the view of a person wearing AR-glasses is shown while using a demo created by HCIS. Applications like this and others (as developed by HCIS) can be used together / simultaneously  by one or more wearers of AR-glasses, who can access the virtual content together and manipulate the objects. (own image)
