Two of our experts from the department »Image Processing« are represented in the jury and as mentors at the Games.

Cooperation

Member of European Machine Vision Association

 

Our department is together with the department »Materials Characterization and Testing« a member of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) since January 2018.

 

The main goal of the non-for-profit and non-commercial association is representing the Machine Vision industry in Europe. The association has been founded in 2003 in Barcelona by industry representatives from all over Europe as a network to promote the development and use of machine vision technology.

 

ITWM Group Researches on Virtual Machine Vision

Online inspection systems have proven themselves in many production environments. But what happens when the components get more complicated? How can your testing be automated despite the increasing individualization of industrially produced products? Answers are provided by virtual image processing, which completely simulates and optimizes the inspection process.

 

ToolIP 2018 available!

ToolIP version 2018 is now released. ToolIP is an image proccessing tool for developing algorithms by simply drag-and-drop. The new version resolves several bugs, includes new plug-ins, and supports several new features.

Vacancies

For working at industrial and research projects, the department Image Processing is always looking for

Interns

  • We offer internships to students and apprentices in technical or natural scientific area
  • As your work requires a period of vocational adjustment, we can only offer internships of one month or longer

 

BSc/MSc and Diploma Students

  • in mathematically motivated image processing, stochastical geometry and spatial statistic
  • Your field of study is not restricted to mathematics or computer science, but students of physics, engineering or related areas are also invited to apply. We supervise your thesis in cooperation with your university or university of applied sciences (German "Hochschule")

 

PhD Students

  • We are permanently looking for PhD students. PhD students will gain scholarships according to the DFG guidance.
