Fraunhofer IGD is the leading international institution for applied research in visual computing. Visual computing is image- and model-based computer science. It combines computer graphics and computer vision. Simplified, it describes the ability to transform information into images and to extract information from images.

 

All technological solutions of Fraunhofer IGD and its partners are based on this. In computer graphics, people generate, process and manipulate computer-aided images, graphics and multidimensional models. Examples are applications of virtual and simulated reality. Computer Vision is the discipline that teaches computers to "see". Here, a machine sees its environment via a camera and processes information via software. Examples of applications can be found in augmented reality.

The Jade Hochschule is Germany's largest maritime university and was founded in 2009. With its Bachelor's and Master's programmes, it trains internationally active executives for work on board and for maritime logistics services in the international transport industry.

 

In rankings the university has been convincing for years with its practical relevance and close contact to the economy. Offshore plants are special products with high demands on efficiency and quality. New challenges in the maritime industry require the use of remote-controlled underwater vehicles for underwater inspection, hazard prevention or damage assessment in a wide range of areas. The demand for small, mobile products is high and will continue to grow in the coming years due to increased safety measures and the growth of industrial activities at sea. Previous solutions offer little scope for the very specific applications.  This is where the department comes in to concretise requirements, analyse current solutions and drive new developments.

 

In order to be able to meet the already high and increasing demand for underwater services, the current marketable system concepts are to be further developed with regard to economic factors such as modularity, logistical manageability and robustness as well as necessarily in sub-areas in the technical components.
