Multimodal Sensor Technology for Human Behavior Classification Human Behavior Classification (HBC) has attracted considerable interest due to its ability to facilitate automation in various application areas, including but not limited to smart homes, active assisted living, and security. At present, optical modalities such as RGB, depth, and thermal imaging are prevalent in the field due … Continue reading Blindsight

TriModal Face Detection Dataset – TMFD Dataset

TMFD Dataset addresses the lack of available depth and thermal face detection benchmarks. The corresponding depth and thermal data frames accompany each RGB image in the dataset. The dataset encompasses a wide range of variations. The samples include different numbers of people in the scene, different individuals, various types of backgrounds, varying distances of measurement, … Continue reading TriModal Face Detection Dataset – TMFD Dataset

HISTORIAN: a large-scale HISTORIcal film dataset with cinematographic ANnotation

Description Developing automated tools for sustainable film preservation of extensive historical film collections assumes an understanding of fundamental cinematographic settings. In order to be able to investigate new approaches to detect and classify cinematographic settings, this paper proposes a novel large-scale historical film dataset with cinematographic annotations (HISTORIAN), i.e., shot boundaries, shot types, camera movements. … Continue reading HISTORIAN: a large-scale HISTORIcal film dataset with cinematographic ANnotation

Event-based and frame-based binocular visual odometry system

The project focuses on Event Camera based Visual Odometry, mainly for robot localization. Unlike conventional frame cameras that output images based on a fixed frame rate, each pixel of an event camera independently detects relative changes in luminosity and outputs event data asynchronously. It has the advantage of high temporal accuracy, high pixel bandwidth, and … Continue reading Event-based and frame-based binocular visual odometry system

Abenteuer Alltag

Das österreichische Filmmuseum besitzt umfangreiche Bestände an Filmen, die von Privatpersonen zwischen den 1920er und den 1990er Jahren in Wien gedreht wurden und deren Leben und Ihre Umgebung auf analogem Film festhalten. Diese Filmdokumente stellen eine einzigartige Quelle der Zeitgeschichte und Alltagskultur dar, die bis jetzt nur in Ansätzen wissenschaftlich, historisch und inhaltlich erschlossen ist. … Continue reading Abenteuer Alltag


PhysAgeNet is a EU COST Action which undertakes coordinated research collaboration at European level. Its aim is to to establish a sustainable network that will foster evidence-based research and practice of physical activity in older adults and will enhance integration of innovative ICT solutions based on open data consolidated research information, in order to promote … Continue reading PhysAgeNet

MIPT Dataset

Description Human behavioral analysis applications in the fields of ambient assisted living (AAL) and human security monitoring require continuous video analysis of individuals. Although intelligent systems deployed in these areas are intended to have a positive impact on the persons involved, subsequent continuous monitoring naturally raises ethical concerns and questions about privacy implications. To address these … Continue reading MIPT Dataset


Artificial Intelligence in the Penal System Ensuring security and order in Austrian prisons is a core task of the penal system. In particular, the protection of persons directly involved in the prison system, i.e. inmates and staff, against physical and psychological violence is of essential importance. In 2019, there was an average of one physical … Continue reading KIIS
