KungFu - Optimization of visual ante-mortem inspection using computer vision

In the beginning of the 20th century the ante-mortem inspection of meat was introduced by the German Professor Dr. Robert von Ostertag. The goal was to contain diseases that could be transferred to humans by infected meat. Nowadays this is a standard procedure done by veterinarians. Due to new European laws in 2014, the ante-mortem inspection has to be done mainly visually to prevent cross-infection which increases the workload of the veterinarians. Concerning pig meat for example, dependent on the size of a slaughterhouse, 200-900 pigs must be inspected per hour.

Reformed gas engine for biogas power generation or combined heat and power plant

The aim of this project is to enhance the market opportunities and to further improve the environmental impact of small and intermediate combined heat and power (CHP) plants. Combined heat and power (CHP) plants convert regenerative generated biogas into power and heat, which can be fed into power or district heating grids. Due to technical reasons the production of heat is higher than power.

Graphene-based THz antennas for ubiquitous
communication devices

Compact antennas are a key determinant for the performance of all future ubiquitous smart devices. Graphene plasmonic micro-antennas with lateral dimensions of just a few micrometers can theoretically have area requirements up to four orders of magnitude smaller than classical metallic counterparts, indicating a huge potential, enabling radically miniaturized wireless communications, providing better integration at much lower cost......

Aerodynamic Optimization of Centrifugal Fans Using CFD-Trained Meta-Models

Due to their significant contribution to the total electricity consumption of the European Union (nearly 10%), future minimum efficiency requirements for fans driven by motors with an electric input power between 125 W and 500 kW are set by EU regulations. As a consequence many currently available fans on the EU market may no longer be sold and the need for efficient design and optimization methods arises. In the context of the current project we focus on centrifugal fans.....

AVIRO - Modular Perception System for Space Robotics

The effective control of robots needs an exact environment model together with a current state description. The aim of AVIRO is the development of such a system. To generate a robust three dimensional model of the environment, the system can be mounted with modular sensor devices. A multi-sensorfusion combines the data of several connected units in real-time. Parallel to this, position, attitude and speed of the system are determined continuously....

Ultra high precision 3D pose estimation for 3D
landscape scanning by micro-UAVs

For some time the Institute of Real-Time Learning Systems uses unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for purpose
of research. Prioritized was the flight control and the recording of photo- and video- material with quadrocopter
systems. The goal of the project “Construction of 3D Environment Models by Fusing Ground and
Aerial Lidar Point Cloud Data” was the extension of these two-dimensional visual data recordings with help of a 3D model.

Project ProRo
Reliable Process of Tube Bending

The chair of Automated Manufacturing and Assembly under the leadership of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Weyrich
develops a sensor- and simulation-module for highprecision and reliable tube bending. The bending performance
is affected by manufacturing tolerances, control processes and inhomogeneity of the raw material.
In cooperation with the chair of Forming Technology and an industrial partner the aim in this project is to
develop a sensor based control system which is able to compensate parameter variation of the raw material.
