Visual Computing

Visual Computing is engaged in the generation, processing and analysis of digital images. By combining computer graphics and computer vision in applied research we develop innovative solutions in the field of augmented reality, virtual reality and interactive information visualization.


Visual Computing combines skills in image processing and computer graphics to leverage the technologies of image-based analysis, geometric modeling, as well as virtual and augmented reality in novel application scenarios within applied research projects.
