Object and Shape Detection

»We cover the entire process chain for 3D data collection.«

The Department of »Object and Shape Detection«, headed by Prof Alexander Reiterer, is focusing on the entire process chain for the automated mapping, referencing, interpretation and visualization of the geometry and position of infrastructural objects. We develop meas­urement systems, mainly laser scanners, and custom lighting and camera systems for mapping objects and shapes three-dimensionally with extreme speed and precision – mostly from moving platforms. Typical measuring ranges are between a few centimeters to hundreds of meters.

Measured data is evaluated in a fully automated process and interpreted by specially developed software. To this end, we employ techniques from the field of artificial intelligence (AI), such as deep learning. Data that is processed and visualized for specific applications provides a sound basis for planning, which is particularly important where infrastructure is concerned, for instance.
