Development of a pose-independent representation of 2D horse shapes
Master's thesis/Practicum/Bachelor thesis

The Spanish Riding School with its Lipizzan horses is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Vienna. In breeding, it is desirable to objectively evaluate the traits of a Lipizzan horse based on quantitative measurements. Unfortunately, traditional approaches of measurement lead to a low repeatability rate due to pose changes of the horse and/or differences between the measurement techniques of different people.

The aim of this thesis is to develop a representation of a 2D horse shape, which is independent of pose OR to develop an approach which is able to “normalize” the current pose of a horse to a standard-pose.

2D tracking of Platynereis dumerilii worms during spawning
Master's thesis/Practicum/Bachelor thesis

The marine annelid Platynereis dumerilii reproduces by external fertilisation and is semelparous, meaning that it spawns only once in its lifecycle. To maximise reproductive success these worms synchronise their spawning events with the lunar cycle and spawn primarily during new moon (Zantke et al., Cell Reports, 2013). In addition, P. dumerilii exhibit particular swimming behaviours during spawning, which are collectively described as a ‘nuptial dance’. The nuptial dance is initiated by excreted pheremones, stimulating male and female worms to swim in circles around one another and finally release sperm and eggs into the water.

The aim of thesis is to develop methods that enable 2D tracking of spawning worms from captured video and extract data to quantify specified behaviours.
