We propose enhanced methods of video quality assessment (VQA) beyond the commonly used mean opinion scores by including factors such as similarity awareness, predicted eye movement sequences, and quantifying the perceptual viewing experience. Furthermore, we create a large video database that is diverse in content and authentic in distortions commonly encountered.
We develop methods for data acquisition, analysis, modeling, optimization and visualization of performance parameters in endurance sports with emphasis on competitive cycling. In comparison with other endurance sports road cycling offers some crucial advantages for research:
- Lab and field studies possible
- Sensors integrate unobtrusively
- Mechanical model of cycling available
- Performance measurement (power) readily available
