Intelligent Sensing Group

The Working Group for ''Intelligent Sensing in Computer Graphics'' (Priv.-Doz. Dr. Frank Weichert) at the Chair of Computer Graphics (Computer Science VII) performs innovative applied research in processing, analysis and visualization of 2D and 3D sensor data.  Focussing on sensor technologies and data, the group tackles applications in the fields of computer vision, pattern matching, scientific visualization, simulation, optimization and human-machine interaction. On an abstract level, the topics often converge in the area of interactions between sensors, actuators and humans in cooperative environments.
