Image acquisition and evaluation

Image evaluation includes processing, real-time processing and automatic and interactive information retrieval from images and videos. In order to be able to represent real objects virtually, our researchers analyze and interpret real images and convert them into information. This requires special digitization and analysis methods, which are being developed in this area. Machine vision is not only what the human eye does, but also means the recording of the entire reflection spectrum from ultraviolet to infrared, as it occurs in nature and technology.
