The ZAB offers students of all disciplines the opportunity to write their thesis or project with us. The topics offered can be written as a bachelor's or master's thesis with adapted scope of functions. Likewise, project work is possible if this is included in the curricula of the degree programme.
We can also assist with papers, or if you have an idea for a topic yourself, you can also contact us directly by email at zab@uni-bielefeld.de.

Since the UniMaps project offers a larger number of papers, it is shown separately again below.

Please direct any enquiries by email to unimaps@uni-bielefeld.de
We are unable to offer any further work on UniMaps for the winter semester of 2023/2024.

 

1. Map creation using machine learning, ray casting and/or computer vision

The "UniMaps" application enables barrier-free navigation within Bielefeld University. The university's map data is available in dxf format and must be converted to osm format. A framework has been developed that allows various algorithms to be used to create maps. As part of this work, various algorithms from the fields of machine learning, ray casting and/or computer vision are to be implemented and then compared with each other.

Other final theses

1. Development of an Ilias plugin for accessibility checking

In the DACHS project, a platform is being developed on which teaching staff, instructors, lectures can check their courses for Accessibility from learning management systems (LMS). In the context of this work, a plugin for the LMS Ilias is to be developed, which forms the interface between the DACHS portal and Ilias. An authentication shall be implemented, with which the accounts in both platforms can be connected with each other. Furthermore, all necessary information shall be extracted from the LMS and sent to the DACHS portal. The plugin should also enable students to send feedback to the teaching staff, instructors, lectures, which will also be transferred to the DACHS portal.

2. Development of automatic accessibility tests for Microsoft Office documents

A Microsoft Office Add-in is currently being developed that will enable users to manually check their documents for accessibility using a checklist. An initial evaluation has shown that users would like the Add-in to check certain checkpoints automatically or to support them in the check. The aim of this thesis is to evaluate which accessibility checkpoints can be checked automatically and where the programme can support users during the check. These are then to be implemented. The existing tool, which was implemented as a web application with Nuxt 3 and Typescript and can access the document via the Office Javascript API, can be used as a basic framework.
